he had no right to make public. He

Attorneys for the committee, however, 
said that they feared any attempt to

miners had demanded an increase in 
wages of 12% per cent, the admission 
of the southwestern states, a 7 per

Considered by Railroad Men and Bank-

New York, March 15.— Representatives 
of the Vanderbilt railways, the Rock Is- 
land railroad and the Pennsylvania rail- 
road held a conference today with J. B 
Forgan, president of the First National 
bank of Chicago, and F. A. Hamil, presi- 
dent of the Corn Exchange bank of Chi- 
cago, who are members of the clearing 
house committee of that city, having in 
charge the affairs of John R. 
Another party to the conference was J. 
R. Hutchlngs of counsel for the Illinois 
Trust & Savings bank, which is mterested 
in the disposal of the Walsh railroatl 
properties. At the conclusion of the con- 
lerence. it was said that no deflnite re- 
sults were reached. 

The committee representing the clear- 
ing house made a proposition, the de- 
tails of which were not made public, 
to representatives of the railroads men- 
tioned, who in turn m.ide a counter- 
proposition which is to be submitted to 
the flnanclal Interests representing 
Walsh's creditors. The members of the 
Chicago clearing house are expected 
to return to Chicago tonight, when 
they will lay the counter-proposition

Chicago Post: 'I might have made a 
fortune had I taken Mr. Howard's ad- 
vice one day down in that Palmer 
House office," remarked a former owner 
of race horses who once enjoyed a lib- 
eral remuneration In the old Gartield 

ark race track days by m.iklng a 

rm chart for the use of the bookies. 
"It Is an Interesting story of a train- 
er's reports on speed trials, tinildy on 
both the trainer's part and my own 
and a lost chance to capture the Ameri- 
can Derby. Mr. Howard overheard 
some of the talk about the horse under 
discussion, and, without looking up 
from his work, made this remark: Bet- 
ter pay the starting feu and race that 
animal In the Derby.' I fully believe 
tliat had I listened to his advice, Pcv- 
tonla would have captured the classic 
that went to 'Lucky' Baldwin's great 
colt, Rey El Santa Anita. 

"Peytonla was the horse of his career 
that June afternoon in li{94. Reference 
to the^ guides will show that he won 
the opening mile race, carrying 9i! 
pounds and Jockey Willie Keith, de- 
feating such speedy ones as Senator 
Irby, piloted by C. Weber, and Flora 
Thornton, guided by Jockey Soden, both 
three-year-old.s, and the four-year-old 
track-burners Sister Mary (Jockey Cas- 
sln) and Maid Marian (Jockey Mosby) 
at odds of 100 to 1. But It is a mat- 
ter of fact that the pencilers thought 
so little of Peytonla that some of the 
knights of the pencil posted SCO to I. 
It Is reported that other bookies said, 
'write your own ticket.' Four AVest 
side young men who were out In a 
carriage for their first society stunt 
as American Derby sightseers began the 
afternoon by pooling their Issues and 
putting $40 on Peytonla at 400 to 1 be- 
cause that was the best price they saw 
on the boards. They went home In four 
carriages. , 

"However, to the point of the tale 
about missing the American Derby vic- 
tory. The trainer reported every day for

several weeks before Derby day that 
Peytonla was burrdng up tlie track in 
his training trials. If Peytonia couid do 
so wel lilt six furloughs and a mile. I 
urged, why not for a mile and a half 
In the big stake lor which he was eligi- 
ble? All that was necessary was the 
payment of the final fee for staring. 

"The nearer came the great day of all 
days for those Interested in racing at 
the big South side track the greater be- 
came my doubts as to whether the com- 
paratively obscure son of Blazes— and the 
get of Blazes were supposed to be the 
best on a heavy track— should 'be started 
In a mile race or sent along in the rich 
Derby for the big prize. Torn by con- 
flicting ideas, 1 consulted time and again 
with the trainer and ttnally left it all to 
him. I wished that he would decide in 
favor of sending Peytonla to tlie post with 
S<-nator Grady. l>espot Rey El Santa 
Anita, etc. Frequently dropping Into the 
club office I discussed the speed quali- 
ties of Peytonla and my .story became 
well known to Mr. Howard. 

"Well, when the entries for the usual 
mile event that always opened the Derby 

day program were put into the entry box, 
the .trainer slipped in Petronia's entrj-. 
It was not too late even then to start 
Peytonla In the rich classic providing 
the fees had been paid to Mr. Howard. 
"But Peytonla was named for only one 
race that day. He was a wild horse in 
that contest. No animal, not even anoth- 
er horse like The Picket, could have de- 
nied Peytonla that afternoon. He won, 
traversing the mile In 1:41%, and there 
was enough speed in him to run another 
mile. The Derby, a couple of hours later, 
was run in 2:36Vi, the first mile being 
covered in 1:4;jV4. Had Peytonia been 
taken out in front— oh. well, I failed to 

take good advice and that's the end 
of it."

A Spectral Boat Makes Lively Lake Mich- 
igan Trip. 

Chicago Ne\v.s; "Lots of .strange 
things happen when a fellow is cruis- 
ing." remarked the old ex-commodore 
as he drew farther away from the 
grate fire. "By the way. Austin, why 
did you desert the Wimlwaid at Mid- 
dle Island last .summer Insttad of .sail- 
ing her all the way to Detroit as you 
agreed to?" 

"1 lost my nerve, to tell the 
truth," replied the yacht.sniari ad- 
dressed. "VNuen the Windward boys 
sold tli»'ir tucuty-one-f'>oter to a De- 
troit man he insisted that some one 
sail the boat from Chicago to Detroit, 
where he would pay the money for 
I her. No one wanted the Windward 
! here, because she had turned bottom 
up in a squall, and part of the crew 
got caught — a bad accident. 

"I had a vacation about the time 
some one had to take the Windward 
to Detroit.' The boys begged me to 
liail her around, and Wentwoith of 
the Vixen agreed to go. I got two of 
the Wndward crew to climb aboard 
also. We left Chicago one .'Saturday 
afternoon with a fair breeze and lots 
of provisions. Nothing happened at 
flr.^it — had nice weatlier. took things 
easy, .sailed by day and ran Into some 
harbor by night. 

"It was seven belLs — we h- ard thf> 
clock distinctly — the fourth day up 
Lake .Michigan, We were cleaning up 
the dishes In the cockpit. The South 
Maniiou Island lay sibout two miles 
off. We heard the creaking of blocks 
— ynu reniemt)er the blocks of the 
Wlulward? You louhi hear them all 
over tin- harbor. We lieard the creak- 
ing of blocks, and they weren't the 
Windward's, etlher. We heard the 
slapping of waves against a boat. 
There, not three lengths away, was a 
white-hulled yacht on the port tack. 
We were on the starboard — had the 
right of \\ay. but I gave in. I hated 
to shove that tiller down, hut I did. 
Then I braced myself and pulled, and 
we mi-ssed the stern of the other yacht 
by a foot. Standing in the cockpit 
was a • p. and he was using his 

legs tn the tiller about. He 

Bwayed to and fro and looked straight 
ahead. Three young fellow:? in white 
duck suits were washing di.sli.-.s In the 

"The boat was a block away before 

any of us spoke. 

" 'Well. Ill be hanged!' Wentworth 
remarked. And so did the rest of us. 
For that boat was an exact duplicate of 
the Windward. 'The fellow at the stick 
looked just like you,' Wentworth said 
to me. And the fellow wiping the big 
pan looked like Wentworth. No atten- 
tion had been paid to us by the other 

•About that time we got a puff from 
the East which gave us quite a knock- 
down, and for a ndnute we were busy 
with our canvas. Wheii we looked 
again no boat was to be seen. 

■We worked over close to the Mani- 
tou. The wind went out and a deathly 
stMlness settled about us. It got quite 
dark. The gla-ss showed nice weather, 
but Wentworth Insisted that we were 
In for a squall. There't a cloud 
In the sky, worth mentioning. Sudden- 
ly the wind came across the Island 
from the northwest. We dropped an- 
chor and decided to stay on the lee of 
the Manitou and see what was coming. 
It came all right— one of the nastiest 
blows I ever saw. We were lucky to 
be Just where we were. We rode It out 
behind the island. The next morning 
the wind flopped around to the south- 
east and we started on our way. 

"We left Mackinac Lsland early two 
days later. Did you ever start out nav- 
igating on a body of water that your 
friends had said was risky business—

"We hit off five miles down Lake 
Huron, then the wind went out. We 
stayed right there for hours, until late 
In the afternoon. It was seven bells 
and the weather was looking a little 
thick— felt more like rain than a blow. 
The t>oys were eating a late supper. 
I was at the stick — had the tiller be- 
tween my legs and my hands In my 
pockets. I was whistling for a breeze, 
when I heard that peculiar creaking of 
blocks and the sound of halyards slap- 
ping against a mast. Looking up I saw 
a mass of canvas right upon us-the 
white-hulled yacht on the port tack

md we had to forget the othor boat 
for a whil>'. It was all we could do to 
get in four reefSi^and beat over, to the 
lee of Bois Ulanc. It was our only 
hope or else run down the lake. We 
got over In the lee of that Island and 
anchored. There we rode out the sec- 
ond storm and sat up in the cockpit 
all night. 

We talked of nothing but the other 
ixiat. It had us guessing and feeling 

"Well, %ve made Middle Island two 
days later— Just about seven bells. 
Tried to run into a little cove near the 
lighthouse, but the water shoaled up. 
so we came about and beat over irear

distance away, and anchored. Cooked 
a swell supper, cleaned up the dishes, 
put In the four reefs -simply to be on 
the safe side— we didn't want to stop 
to reef if the wind changed and we bad 
to run for the lee of Middle Island. 

"It was about two bells and we were 
playing cards in the cabin and wishing 
wo could make Au Sable, by 3 o'clock 
the next afternoon, when suddenly wo 
heard that old sound of creaking blocks. 
We rushed into the cockpit. It was 
very dark and not a boat could we see. 
We sat in the cockpit for a while and 
talked If over, but nothing happened, 
so we went below. Half an hour later 
we heard the same sound. While we 
were seated In the cockpit discussing 
the matter the wind whipped around

"Wentworth and the two Windward 
boys were forward holding on to the 
anchor and ready to drop It when we 
reached a good place. Suddenly they 
all yelled, 'Luff her! Luff her!' and as 
I did I heard the creaking of blocks 
and saw the dark shadows of a yacht 
cut across our trows on the port tack. 
We could make out four shadows on 
her deck. We yelled and cussed, but 
got no reply, and, fellows, we saw that 
boat sail straight ^p through a big 
circle of fish nets not far from us. Up 
In Lake Huron they put posts down 
with pile drivers and string a cablo 
between them and hang the nets on — no 
yacht can cut through Lake Huron fish 

"We got over to the lee of the island 
after a dickens of a time and rode out

very widespread in the city during the

According to tlie monthly report of the 
health departnient for February, there 
was but one case of measles which result- 
ed fatally. In another instance tlie dis- 
ease was the contributing cause of a 
death, pneumonia l>eing the direct cause. 

Pneumonia led the list of diseases for 
the Miontii, being the cause of no less nineteen deaths out of the total of 
sev«ntj'-rtve for the month. 

Tuberculosis came next on the list, with 
a total of et^ht deaths for the month. 

Tht^\j Wrre four fatal accidents in Feb- 
ruary, and cancer wa.s responsible for 
four deaths. Three more were due to 
heart disease, and six children died of 

Outside of the epidemic of measles, 
there were but v»'ry few cases of con- 
tagious diseases in the city, and no deatlis 
from tlieni during the month. One case of 
djplitlieria and two cases of sciirlel fevt-r 
Were reported by tlie health Inspectors 
and quarantined, but all three of the pa- 
tients recovered. 

One sporadic case of smallpox appeared 
during the month, and the pest house

of disuse, but iiij ciigns of the spread of 
the disease haile been seen, and no new

This left a natur&L increase of 33 in the 
population, for the month. 

"That boat never reached Detroit. 
Whether the fisherman hid her away 
for thflr own use or got caught in a 
gale between harbors we never knew. 
For my part. I'm through. Took me 
six months' savings to settle up for 
that cruise, with the help of the other 
boys. too. but we considered ourselves 
lucky at that."

People of Edinburgh Have a New Pest 
to Contend With. 

Edinburgh, March 15.— In the streets 
of Edinburgh last week men were seen 
carrying about bottles of many kinds 
and sizes wlilcli they eagerly compared. 
The bottle lield specimens of the water 
flea, which Is plaguing the city. Di. 
Uunn states that he has found the fleas, 
which are a new variety, over the en- 
tire southern district of the city, and 
he believes that he has proved that the 
Intruder has had Ita origin outside of 
the cisterns. He has fitted muslin or 
gauzp bags to the taps In different 
houses, and so captured many speci- 
mens. He describes the flea as of a 
iK'w variety, yellowish in color, with 
four legs, two abortive wings and a 
peculiarly shaped head. The body, 
which is semi-developed, is of a hard 
substance, jrlossy and shiny in appear- 
ance. The tlea lives always on th<- sur- 
face of the water and is large enough 
to be seen with the naked eye. With 
a microscope it m.vy be seen to spring 
from a sitting position on Us hind legs 
several Inches along the surface of the 
water. . Though .such an epldenilo of 
fleas has never been known before, and 
though this flea Is of a new variety, 
Dr. Gunn says that he does not believe 
that it win prove harmful when It 
comes to the nrratter of spreading dis- 
ease. He blames the hyarant system 
for its presence in the city.

Dinner of Several Courses 

Can be Cooked on 


Junction City, Kan., March 15.— Here- 
after the flreless cooker will be a part of 
the United States army's equipment. Only j 
one of these cookers is now being used In 
the army, but this week Capt. M. S. Mur- ' 
ray, commissary. United States army, 
commissary and director of the school^ 
for cooks and bakers at Fort Riley, was 
instructed by the war department to fur^- 
nish designs for two more tireless cook- 
ers with improvements over the one ust-d 
at Fort Riley, if he had any to suggest. 
One of the new cookers is intended for 
the Presidio, and the other for Washing- 
ton Barracks, at which posts it has been 
proposed to scliools for bakers 
and cooks on the .same plan as the one 
at l^ort Riley, where the army's cooks 
and bakers, and the captains of the com- 
missary department are Instructed in tlie 
art of cooking and baking. 

Capt. Murray of Fdri RUey designed 
the first tireless cooker that was made 
for army use. For more than a year 
past Capt. Murray ha.s been experiment- 
mg with flreless cooking. At first he 
used the primitive method of placing 
heated foods In boxe.s, and packing hay 
around the vessels containing the. fond 
for the retention of tiie lieat. The ex- 
periments were carried on In this way 
for nearly a year. The results that were 
obtained were so satisfactory that the 
war department became Interested in 
them, and Capt. Murray was ordered to 
New York for tlie purpose of de.signing 
more practicable arrangements for car- 
rying on the experiments. In the Army 
building In New York Capt. Murriiy 
showed a very satisfactory experiment 
with the flreless cooking method, which 
was witnessed by a number of army of- 
filcers, among whom was Gen. Jolin F. 
We.ston, commis.sary general of the army 
at that time. The war department gave 
orders for the manufacture of a cooker 
that was deemed to be practicable for 
army use, and this cooker arrived at Fort 
Riley in the first week of last January. 

The arow's cooker has a trunk 
or chest-Tike appearance when it is 
closed. It is an Ironbound wooden afTair, 
that is lined on the Inside with about an 
inch and a half of felt and .specially pre- 
pared paper that has been found to have 
the best quality for heat and air insula- 
tion. The box contains six separate com- 
partments for as many different vessels 
of food, and are insulated from 
each other by about an inch and a half 
of the felt and paper. When the cooker 
Is closed each comi>artment is surrounded 
by a thickness of the insulating? material. 
That is all there is to the cooker, except 
that there are iron vessels for the food 
that fit snugly into each of the compart- 

In preparing a meal in this flreless 
cooker. Captain Murray first heats his 
food to the cooking temperature, about 
212 deg. As soon as the food has been 
given that temperature, it Ie placed in 
the compartments of the cooker, and 
there allowed to remain from two or 
fifteen Iiours. Some foods are ready to 
be served In less than two hours after 
being in the cooker, but most foods, es- 
pecially meats, have to cook three to 
four hours. In this cooker is com- 
bined the triple method of cooking- 
boiling, steaming and roasting. 

This simple method of cooking by re- 
tained heat has worked out perfectly 
In the army-make of the flreless cook- 
er. It has been found that after the 
heated food has been placed in the 
cooker Its temperature falls at the 
r.ate of about five degrees an hour, and niost food continues to cook as 
long as it Is above 140 deg. On Feb- 
ruary 15, Captain Murray gave the 
cooker a severe open-air test. The 
ground was covered with snow, and in 
the morning when the test began, the 
temperature was 18 deg. above zero. 
Ham to be boiled, veal roast, potatoes 
to be boiled and eoffee were heated to 
a cooking temperature in a few minutes 
over a trench fire and placed in the 
cooker at 10 a. m., where they remained 
until 5 p. m., of the same da v. At 5 
o'clock when they were taken out, 
the outside temper.iture was 30 deg. 
above zero. When they were taken out 
tlie temperature of the ham was 138 
deg., veal 156 deg., potatoes 147 deg., 
and coffee IW deg., after having been 
In the cooker seven hours, and all that 
time entirely removed from any source 
of heat with the cooker on a snow- 
covered ground, and the outside tem- 
perature from 2 to 14 deg. below the 
freezing point. 

At another time, Captain Murr.ny pre- 
pared a dinner in the cooker for 100 
men. This he did in one of the build- 
ings at Fort Riley. Before putting the 
food into the cooker, he heated corned 
beef fifteen minutes, cabbage five min- 
utes, bean soup ten minutes, potatoes 
five minutes and custard pudding five 
minutes en cassarole. They had a tem- 
perature of about 21:: deg. when placed 
In the cooker, and three hours and ten 
minutes later when they were taken 
out, the average temperature of the 
food was 190 deg. 

Last Saturday a dinner of baked beans, 
iv-»ast beef, macaroni and cheese, suet pud- 
ding and coffee was prep.ared and placed 
in the cooker about 7 o'clock in the morn- 
ing. The cooker was then lo.ided onto 
a wagon, as if a body of troops were 
off for an all-day march. The cooker 
was hauled out into the oi)en where it re- 
mained until 5 o'clock in the evening, and 
when the food was taken out then the 
average temperature of the various arti- 
cles was IStJ degs. 

The experiments that have been made 
with the fireless cooker show that It 
makes a saving of 80 per cent in fuel 
used in cooking a meal; that it lessens 
the attention neces.sary to cooking 50 per 
cent; that all of the nutritive values of 
meats and vegetables is saved; retains all 
of the finer flavors; that onions, cabbage, 
etc.. can be cooked without odor; saves 
nfarly all of the weight of foods cooked; 
that thero Is absolutely no risk of over- 
cooking, scorching or burning foods, and 
that food may b<' cooked and k^»pt in the 
box for fifteen hours and still be hot, 
Juicy and palatable. 

The flreless cooker will be used in the 
army for a practical purpose. When 
troops are on the march or In the field, 
after the army has t>een supplied with 
these cookers, they will not have to do 
without the noonday meal, as hereto- 
fore. The army doe» not stop for dinner 
when it is iu a hurry, but now since It 
has adopted the fireless cooker, the mid- 
day meal can be prepared at the same 
time as the breakfast and enough food 
for 100 men can be placed In the cooker, 
which is hauled in a wagon, and tlie din- 
ner will be cooked while the soldiers are 

At Fort Riley this cooker has been nse<l 
by the huntinK club when a large number 
go out for an all-day chase. On these 
occasions, a stop is made In the field 
about the middle of the d.'iy. and a hot 
lunch is served. Troops that have been 
on practice marches have used the flre- 
less cooker with very sati.^factory results. 
It Is practically a certainty that the fire- 
less cooker has proved through the ex- 
periments made by Capt. Murray to have 
many great advantages. 

A dinner pail made on the same prin- 
ciple as the cooker is to be given a trial 
by the workmen who are employed on 
the construction work there.

while a ddld by Enoch Hart, a Uirm< r.

after the death ot her parents, and just 
at the close of the Civil war. 

John went West, but eventvially re- 
turned to Trenton. Mr. Hart removed 
to Dutch Neck, and later went to Darby, 
Pa., where he built up a flourishing hotoi 
business. In the meanwhile broilier and 
sister had lost sight of tacli other. Mr. 
Hart died and in lbi^3 Miss Bryer niariiid

though he had not seen him in many 
years, at once recognized him. The cap-

Connecticut Woman Wants Handsome 
Pay for Care of an Eccentric 

Greenwich, Conn., March 15.— Mrs. 
John J. Burnell, wife of a well-to-do 
physician of this city, left the room 
where she had been ill in bed for sev- 
eral weeks to go to court and give evi- 
dence in a suit for $23,000 against the 

estate of the late David S. Husted, a 
man of miserly habits, who at, one time, 
although owning muclt property next 
to that of William Rockefeller, lived iii 
a barn. 

Samuel Fessenden, attorney foi- 
Husted's estate, and the admhiistratur, 
William Abel Husted, souRiit to have 
the hearing postponed, but Stiies Jud- 
son, counsel for the plainiifl', declared 
that his client was so ill that If the 
case was postponed she nilshl not live 
to be able to give testimony. As soon 
as Mrs. Burnell appeared she told 
things about the late Mr. Husted and 
his sister that threatened to precipitate 
a wordy war, but tlie judge cut it 

Mrs. Burnell exhibited a note for 
$25,000 which she said the late Mr. 
Husted had given her. Mr. Husted 
had been sick and Dr. Burneli had at- 
tended him. At that time, said the 
witness, Mr. Husted lived in a barn 
next to William Rockefeller's estate 
and she carried beef tea to him. He 
told her, she declared, that his brother 
and sister had refused aid to him and I 
he was sued for burning his neighbor's 
barns years ago and had refused to ' 
sign a release of the family burial i 
ground w hen he wanted to sell his I 
farm to Mr. Rockfellcr. He told her I 
that his relations never came near him | 
unless they wanted money and that his 
brother kept his tioy up half the night j 
to grind chalk for the morning's milk. 

Mr... Husted, Mrs. Burnell testified, | 
agreed that If she would take care ofj 
him until his death and then provide | 
for his housekeeper, \\ ho was 80 years | 
old, until her death, he would give herj 
$25,000. She declare."? that she made 
this agreement without her husband's 

After living with the Burnells a 
month Mr. Husted died. His relatives 
buried him and according to Mrs. Bur- 
nell, carried away all his belongings. 
Dr. Burnell now has a claim against 
the Husted estate for $12,000 for serv- 

The late Jotham Tompkins of New

To Russian Prisoners at Warsaw De- 
scribed by Prof. Courtenay. 

St. Petersburg, Mai^h 15.— Prof, Cour- 
tenay, a member of the Academy of 
Sciences, in an open letter today, de- 
scribes the horrible tortures to which 
he reports the prisoners at Warsaw 
were subjected by Chief of Police 
Gruen. He cites as examples two cases 
in which prisoners were starved, and on 
four consecutive nights were beaten 
with clubs, jumped on, their hair pulled 
out by the roots, and the soles of ihelr 

feet cut with knives, until they sigjied 
statements, cnnfes.sing their guilt. 


District Attorney Argues 

It Cannot be Granted 

to Corporations. 

Chicago, March I'l. — District Attorney 
Morrison continued his argument in the 
packers' case today. The basis of his 
contention that the packers are not en- 
titled to immunity is. that under the 
rulings of the supreme court of the 
United States, a corporation cannot be 
granted immunity, and that all the 
books and pajjcrs which were turned 
over to the government during its In- 
vesligatlon of the beef industry were 
the books and papers of corporations 
which did not in any sense carry Im- 
munity to individuals. 

Attorney Rosenthal is expected to be- 
gin his argument for the packers late 
today, and tlien Attorney General 
Moody will close for the government.

Wrestling Tournament! 

Lyceum tonight. Gotch vs. Maynard. 

Lamar (Mo.) Democrat: The fire bell 
clanged about 11 o'clock, Wednesday 
forenoon, and there was unusual ex- 
citement and commotion. The high 
wind made it a mighty dangerois time 
for a fire to break out, and everybody 
was scared. For some reason tliero 
wasn't a dray on the public square, and 
the result was the fire boys had to pull 
the cart themselves. By the time they 
got around to the west side of the 
square their tongues were hanging out 
of their mouths, and Deputy Sheriff 
Walters, who was on horseback, 
grabbed the rope an<i pulled the cart 
after him. One of Tom Carleton's cab 
teams grew frightened at the pande- 
monium and dashed off down the street 
from the Pickwick at a furiou.s gallop. 
Bert Castle overtook them on his racer, 
and brought them back. Let's see where 
we are at, anyway. C)h, yes, the fire, 
why, it was a panful of grease got afire 
down at Tom Snorgrass's. Burnt all of 
the grease up. but Tom says he's will- 
ing to give this much toward making 
the old town lively.

has held Dulutfi back in the pa?t has been the tact that

It is. a great pic • al>lc to inform the Tran- 

m1 alt others wiio may possess the same kindly 
. ..v.. .. ;hat along both of these lines Dniuth is working 
out her .salvation. There was a tune, following her dis- 
astrous buoni, vvhi-n Duluth was heavily weighted down 
hj mortgages and hampered by outside interests in local 
property. Interest on mortgages went Mast, and much 
property bought by the East at boom prices was tied up 
waiting lor a return of the boom. IinKbteiino^ to the 
vas cleared away, local capita! !>ecame available 
tor loans, and local people began to buy back their prv»p- 
erty. Today Duluth's wealth per capita is probably as 
great as that of any city ut her >ize ana age in tlie coun- 
try. She has an abundance of local "rich men" who are 
pubiic spirited and awake to their opportunities, and the 
financial conditions could not well be healthier. 

The sorrowful spectacle of raw material that ought 
to be manufactured liere being shipped away, leaving 
comparatively little benefit behind, still continues, 
though not to so marked a degree as formerly. Slowly 
but surely the manufacturing industries of Duluth are 
growing, and when the immense operations looking to 
the Jevel >;>r,uitt i.f water power, which are now under 
way, are completed, the growth of manufacturing will 
advance much more rapidly. Jobbing is a great and 

wanted him. There is nothing in the conatitution or the 
laws that would prevent a Duluth man from going to 
congress from the Mankato district, or a man from 
Luverne running in the Bemidji district. The fact that 
it seldom or never happens^has led many people to im- 
agine that there is a law requiring that a legislator shall 
reside in his own district, but there is not. The prefer- 
ence T)f the people of any district for a neighbor to rep- 
resent them in congress, however, is stronger than any 
law, and stands in the way of any such mixing of dis- 

The trouble with Grosvenor is that he was in con- 
gress so long that he grew away from his district and its 
people. The same trouble exists with many other con- 
gressmen, some of whom are likely to suffer Grosve- 
nor's fate this year. 

A man who is sent to congress from any district goes 
down to Washington full of patriotic impulses, and 
bursting with schemes to do things for his district. 
Soon he becomes impregnated with the atmosphere of 
partisanship and changed by the association with large 
affairs, and he begins to outgrow his district and fancy 
himself a national character. His visits home grow 
.shorter and farther apart, his .sympathy with his con- 

"J. J. Hill, who has proved himself 
to be a proph^A a^¥iotti in his ability 
to forecast thM Hvs of development 
of commerce aad settlement, declared 
a short time ago in an addre.«is at 
Spokane that the chief Interest of the 
cominer seneratlun would be the set- 
tlement and inMrOfement of the fruit 
lands In the Country west of the 
Rockies." said U i^^Edmonseon of Nel- 
son, B. C, at th* Stl Louis. 

"The Kooteiuiy district is fast be- 
cominer famous as a fruit region. The 
variety of fruits now raised there is 
large, and comprises all kinds of ap- 
ples, peaches, pears, cherries, plums and 
prunes. All sorts of small fruits and 
vegetables j-ield abundantly. While 
fruit raising Is now coming to the 
front, the chief industries of the dis- 
trict have heretofore been mining and 
lumbering. This district is one of the 
most tilghly mlneraJized countries In 
the world, and there are valuable mines 
within two mile.s of Nelson."

"The 'Dutch treat' custom has been 
Introduced into one of the popular stud- 
ent hiing-outs at Ann Arbor," said J. 
E. Cohen of Ann Arbor, Mich., at the

It was a little warmer last night, the 
lowest being 8 deg. below against 12 deg. 
below the night before, and the warmest 
yesterday t>eing 10 deg. above against 6 
deg, above the day before. The weather 
man expects it to be slightly warmer 
tonight, with the temperature close to 
zero, and he thinks there may be occa- 
sional slight snow flurries. There were a 
tew snow flakes in the air this morning, 
and It was cloudy. The ice field formed 
Monday night still sticks. Says Mr. 
Itlchardson of conditions: 

"A disturbance that developed over the 
Gulf of Mexico has moved Its center to 
the Carolltias, while the Utah depression

Conditions favor oecaslonal light snow 
flurries tonight and Friday and the tem- 
perature will not change much except 
that It may not be quite so cold tonight 
as it was last night."

The other day in Xew York a laborer who was em- 
ployed in digging an excavation in a street fell dead at 
his task. * 

When he came to work in the morning he was mani- 
festly in poor condition, and the foreman said; "Go 
home. Vi'i're sick and not fit to work." 

"I've got to," the laborer replied. "My wife is sicker 
tlian I am. and we have got to have bread and butter." 

That man was as truly a hero as any soldier who 
ever marched up to the cannon's mouth or lead a for- 
lorn hope. He was sick unto death, barely able to keep 
his unwilling muscles in motion, yet because his wife 
was sicker than he was, and because he had to earn 
bread, he faced his task and bravely labored until nature 
could stand the strain no longer, and then he died. 

There are many such heroes. Those afflicted with

Real Event of Ihe Season. 

Cascade, Iowa, Pioneer: One of the 
most delightful events; of the season was 
the sleighing excu^rswn to the home of 
Miss Katie Arthur at Melleray. By the 
cheerful fire the phonograph repeated in 
song many tales of lore and valor, in Its 
characteristic, mirth-provoking way. 
While Miss Birdie Devaney, assisted by 
Joh:i McGrath. rendered delightful music 
for the lovers of the dance. The guests 
were treated in a royal manher and en- 
.ioyed themselves exceedingly. With hei\rt- 
felt gratitvi^e toward I heir host and host- 
ess, they turned Honunvard when the en- 
vious dawn was breiiklng through the 
clouds of the gulden east. 


Boston Transcript: Probably when Du- 
luth has a million people there will be 
those who will draw their conception or' it 
from Proctor Knotts oelebrat< d speech 
In "The Zenith City of the L'n- 
salted Seas," as Duluth was then en- 
tlth'd, has been growing Into a big city 
without our thinking or healing very 
much about It here in Boston. That is 
not entirely our fault, either, for al- 
though Duluth Is a great Inland seaport, 
and has topographical advantage.^ like 
those of Buffalo, we still tliink of it as a 
transfer station on the map, a place 
through which come the grain, the lumber 
and tlie mlneral.s of the Northwest. 
What Duluth needs, and what it will no 
doubt come to have in time, is the reputa- 
tion of a place which i.s a terminal and 
not a junction point. Nearly $200,o>«>.o» 
worth of freight pas.sed out of Duluth 
h.irbor last ye,ar. The increasp of frefglit 
over 19t)4 was 3ij.46 per cent and the in- In valuation nearly $40,000,000. The 
two leading items of freight were iron 
ore from the vast Me.saba ranges back of 
Duluth, and of geneial merchandise going 
into the Northwest to build un further 
ireight business In the near future. 
These were nearly equally dividi-d. the 
ore being valued at $:57.'»0.">»") and tiie gen- 
eral merchandise at $3t).000.'>Xi. 

Yet the thing that retards the growth 
of Duluth— if one may speak of .such a 
growing city as being in any way retard- 
ed—is the fact that It Is capitalized from 
outside, and that too much of it Is held 
by speculators — the i:"urse of every young 
and growing city. If Duluth's own ships 
carried away manufactures of Iron in- 
stead of iron ore; if they transported 
flour instead of wlieal; if the great Min- 
nesota wood.s were made into buildings, 
furniture and lumber for in Duluth, 
instead of b«^ing sent to other cities on 
the Great Lakes; if Duluth had the 
laljorers and skilled workers to do this 
manufacturing, and tlie capital in tlie 
control of loeal interests to cari'y on this 
work, it would be the already great in- 
stead of tin? future gr<^at. It takes time 
for these things, and Duluth has suffer^d 
as being one of the most "over-boomed " 
towns in .the country, but it has long 
since passed tluit period. It ought to get 
"bls'ger, better and busier," as well as 
Boston, and this ean be accomplished in 
Dulu'h, a.s Well as here, by an enlarged 
civic pride and by everybody putting his 
shoulder to the wheel, not to shout at the 
horses, but to push.

Duluth Dock company was organized,

Pekin. March 15.— If China docs not find 
herself Involved In another war with the 
powers before the middle of the summer 
of 1906, it will surprise all the foreigners 
who have been students of Cliinese char- 
acter for many, many years. The situa- 
tion In many respects is far more serious 
than it was a few months previous to the 
Boxer rebellion. 

The news of the massacre of French and 
English missionaries at Nan Chang, to- 
gether with the announcement that the 
American missionaries at that place 
escaped the massacre only by takhig to 
boats when the threat of massacre be- 
came imminent, surprises no one who has 
been keeping posted upon the situation 
here in this country. The American boy- 
cott proves conclusively ihat, even tpklng 
it for granted tlie dowager empress and 
her court love the Americans like broth- 
ert>, this love and atleellon is not shared 
by the rank and UK-. Even the mer- 
chants, the banking and commercial 
classes, powertul interests in China as 
in other nations, appear to have egged 
on this boycott of American goods. And 
this boycott can be explained upon no 
other grounds than the grounds of bitter- 
est hatred. It Is true that as soon as the 
intentions of the mob became known to 
tlie governor of Nan Chang, he used the 
force at Ills command to suppress the 
rioting, and that he also assisted by every 
means in his power to aid in the escape 
of the missionaries who had not already 
be< ri murdered. According to the reports 
here, the original quarrel was with the 
French Jesuits, no otlier nationality being 
involved. Hut the rage of the mob, once 
excited, did not draw the line between 
the French and the representatives of 
other nationalities. All Christian mission- 
aries without discrimination were at- 
tacked Willi the intention of making a 
I clean sweep. Therein lies tlie whole 
trouble. Difficulties which in other coun- 
I tries might become purely local, as for 
I instance the lynching of the Italians in 
Louisiana in the United States a few 
I years ago. here became international, and 
i all in a moment. And the fever for the 
killing of missionaries in one town, if un- 
I checked, will sxiread from town to town 
with amazing rapidity. 

The sooner one thing is recognized 
by the nations of the world, the United 
States Included, the better it will be 
for the nations of the world, the United 
States Included. i»o matter whether 
one likes the nation or not— no matter 
whether one agrees Avith her civiliza- 
tion, still it must be admitted that for 
hundreds of years Russia has been a 
sort of an international policeman on 
the Chinese and Tartar frontier. And 
millions and millions of the representa- 
tives of the yellow race-who knew no 
other nationa..ty, feared no other na- 
tionality, did know and fear the Rus- 
sian soloiers. These wonderful new 
c. .eg built on the norlnern border of 
Chin.i, those railroads pushed through 
to the sva. did act as a policeman's 
club to keep in chc^k millions of Man- 
chus and Tartars who perhaps never 
heard of tne United States, but who did 
know the meaning of the crack of the 
whip of tne Cossack, the knout of the 
Russian soldier only recently applied 
to the back of the Russian peasant and 
made perfect by practice. Take away 
the international policeman, take away 
Intern.Htional policeman's club, 
the pressure, and what is happen- 
now is what always happens when 
pressure is lifted from Irresponsi- 
peoples ai.d authority is suoteeded 
no authority at all. For it should 

sand miles on the northern boundary 
of China, Russia was the supreme au- 
thoritv. And now that this Interna- 
tional glck man (with apologies to the 
Turk) la no longer able to wield the 
policeman's club, the whole attitude of 
the Chinese people has undergone a 
remarkable change; the patient, timid 
Asiatic would suddenly seem to have 
realized that the power of the West is 
no longer Invincible, and the result has 
been an immediate awakening of the 
national instinct and the expression of 
its national policy— China for the Chi- 

The causes which predispose the Chi- 
nese people towards the possibility of 
so sudden a change are undoubtedly, 
tirsl, their instinctive and not unjusiiri. 
able aversion to the objects and meth- 
ods of European civilization, and sec- 
ondly, the absolute ignorance of tlie 
newspaper men, the writers and even 
the classes which here as well as 
abroad mold and guide public opinion. 
Were it not for this all-pervading Ig- 
norance and the Inability of those who 
lead the present movement to realize 
the actual position of the empire in its 
rt-lalion to the rest of the world, the 
victories of Japan would have sobered 
rather than stimulated the national 
mind. As matters now stand, however, 
the classical scholar of the old regime 
complacently reminds himself that 
Japan received her prehistoric education 
from the Middle Kingdom, while the 
student reformer talks loudly of in- 
sisting on his country's sovereign 
rights and the immediate organizing 
of armies. Neither the one nor the 
other realizes that they themselves are 
sufficient explanation of the fact that 
China has at present no more hope than 
Turkey of climbing to the heights that 
Japan has won; that her administrative 
corruption far exceeds that of Russia; 
and that she is constitutionally incap- 
able of making the sacrifices by which 
Japan was apparently able to cast oft 
medievalism In a day. 

Amongst observers of the Far Eastern 
question there Is a disposition to accept 
as Identical the national characteristics 
and aspirations of China and Japan. To 
a certain extent some of the contentions 
are justified as is proved by the presence 
of a great number of Japanese in tlie 
cities of the interior of China, where Eu- 
ropeans are not tolerated, by the intimate 
relations naturally resulting from simi- 
larity of thought, language and customs. 
But closer scrutiny of those relations in 
both countries justifies one in doubting 
the existence of racial sympathy suffi- 
cient for their permanence. The present 
mood of the Chinese is chielly due to the 
rtcognilion of the success of Japan in 
war and to a desire to acquire the sec- 
rets of that success for their own pur- 
poses. It is this desire which has sent 
m.lxX) students to Japan in the last two 
>ears, which accounts for the large num- 
ber of Japanese advisers, school teachers 
and military instructors In every prov- 
ince of China; but there exists at the 
same so fundamental that a Japanese in- 
structor can no more permanently inttu- 
tnce the morale of a viceroy's yarnen 
than a Chinese student in Papan can as- 
similate the principles of bushido. 

Tlie immediate outlook is therefore un- 
promising, but the very rapidity with 
which the present mood has been devel- 
oped and expressed may justify the hope 
that it will not endure. Should It persist 
such incidents as the boycott and the 
rioting must Inevitably recur, and sooner 
or later the maintenance of China's in- 
tegrity under such conditions. $t will need 
a guiding hand or another big policeman, 
or a doze-i policemen In the capacity of 
the powers of the world to maintain or- 
der if things continue as they are going

British Government is Finding the Sys- 
tem a Necessity. 

l^ondon, March 15.— Underground wires 
have become practically a system so far 
as the United Kingdom .9 concerned. Al- 
re.idy an underground connection has been 
established between Londcm and Scot- 
land, thus marking an epoch in the hle- 
torv of English tebgraphy. The busl- 
t.ess of the country .is well as the pre.«er- 
v.itton c«f rapid j<rivale communication 
are thus no longer completely al the 
mercy of a furious gale which has peri- 
odically blown down the aerial wires and 
tat the leUgraphic communication be- 
tween the inetrojiolls and distant Indus- 
trial towns, sometimes isolating Scot- 
land and Ireland. The two main diffi- 
culties in the way of providing the cost, 
which is enormou.*, and secondly certain 
electrical obstacles which are e%'en more 
grave than ihf Hnancial one The great- 
est obstacle in the way of tht succesaful 
establishnunt of underground lines, how- 
ever, has been the capacity of a covered 
xvire— that is, its ability to retain and 
aceumulale a portion of the current 
thrown into It. In order to overcome 
lluse <lifficulties in connection with long 
distance lines various obslncles have been 
tried and experts believe that success has 
been achieved.

The seven Belfords, acrobat.s, are creat- 
ing no end of talk among the patrons of 
the Bijou, where they are appearing this 
week, and the pretty little theater is 
being packed to the vei-y doora at almost 
every performance. 

The Bellords appear at only two per- 
formances during the day, the matinee 
in the afternoon and the lirst i>erformance 
in the evening. They are given tlie head- 
line position on the bill, and if a turn 
ever deserved it, Ihe Belfoi^s have it. 
Their stunts are not tlie* time-worn 
acrobatic feats. Every one of tlie .seven 
is well developed and healthy-looking, 
and they accomplish ail their teats with

c.ill for this extraordinary meeting ot 
Ihe United Mine Workei-s of America; and 
in addition thereto, make some sugges- 
tions for vour guidance which may facili- 
lale the "work of the convention and I 
hope prove helpful in re-establishing our 
relations with the operators upon a basis 
that will be just to them, reasonably sat- 
isfactory to the great constituency we 
represent and at the same time properly 
considerate of the welfare of the en- 
tire country, whose interests cannot be 
disregarded with impunity by any 
of citizens, regardless of its strength 

While in New York attending meetincfH 
of the anthracite committee appointed by 
the Shamokin convention held on Dec. 
14— a report of which was submitted at 
our annual convention— first by accident, 
and then by arrangement, I met and held 
several conferences with Francis 1... Rob- ; 
bins, president of the Pittsburg Coal com- , 
pany and subsequently with other oper- | 
ators, prominent participants in our iasl 
joint conventions. At these conferences 1 
ibc question of our disagreement upon ' 
the wage scale was discussed in an In- 
formal way. I also held conferences with 
several of the leading and active workers 
in our own movement, so that I might 
inform myself more fully as to the status 
of affairs in the various parts of the 
ccuntrv, so far as it affected the inter- 
tsts of our organization and the welfare 
of our people. 

As a result of these meetings, we came 
to believe that there had been such chan- 
ges in the coal trade, or at least m the 
attitude of the operators, as to justify 
the hope that there was a possibility

Aside, however, from my own im 
sions and the impressions of those 
colleagues with whom I consulted, 
following letter from the president 
United States, addressed to Mr 

central competitive and the Southwest- 
ern fields have called meetings of their 
representatives to be held in this city 
on Monday morning, March 19. 

VVhil, of course, the many conflicting 
and inharmonious statement.s emanat- 
ing from various sources purporting to 
reflect the views of the operators, seem 
to Indicate an entire absence of unity 
and concord among them in regard to 
the question of advancing wages, 1 am 
nevertheless hopeful, if not fully con- 
vinced, that the urgency and serious- 
ness of the situation will prompt them 
to make such reasonable concessions 
In the matter of wages and conditions 
and will enable us to join them in the 
rehabilitation of our joint movement 
and the perpetuation of the practical 
business relationship under which we 
have worked with mutual advantage 
during the past eight yenrs. And to 
this end I feel it Incumbent upon me 
cln«s i f" s:ty that a very large degree of re- 
isponslbilily will rest upon us If these 
I proposed negotiations lead to success. 
I A."s to the power and scope of the con- 
vention, you have undoubtedly noted from. 
I the call "which was issued by your inter- 
national secretary-treasurer, that while 
the principal of the meeting is 
to consider our wage agreements, its 
function is not confined to the one sub- 
ject. It may. in addition thereto, transact 
such other business as may be lawfully 
brought before it. 

In the consideration and dl.soussion of 
all matters coming before the convention, 
it is my hope that acrimonious debate 
will be entirely eliminated and that we 
shall stand united in an earnest effort to- 
serve our people and to secure for them 
a larger measure of the fruits of their 
toils, that when we leave Indianapolis 
our organization may have regained any 
prestige lost as the result of the interna- 
tional dissension and that even those un- 
friendly to labor may be .satisfied that 
the united mine workers is a sane, just, 
business association, whose highest pur- 
pose is not to achieve victories by means 
of Its great strength, but rather through 
the inherent justice that lies in the cause 
it represents.

i son, has been engaged for years poet in 
selling lottery bonds at jirlces far higher 
than their official market value. 

These serious allegations grew out of 
a case in which an Englishman named 
Page was chargi d with t- nibezzling $-.250 
from Mrs. Clarke and her stepson by 
whom he was employed. The prisoner's 
counsel said that during the two years 
and a half he had had charge of the 
business he had lncrea.«ed its turnover 
from |ti,(K<u lo $20.WiO p^r annum. 

Besides the printing works in the Rue 
des Sivints Peres. Mrs. Clarke and her 
stepson carried on another and a very 
different kind of busintss at No. 10 Place 
de la Boure. There ihcy sold lottery bonds 
of all kinds lo English people who might 
be expected lo know little of the real 
value, at a price which was ai« much aa 
60 per cent lo 100 per cent at>ove their 
real value. Counsel showed that the 
Panama bond which the Clarkes offered 
for $45 was quoted in the official list at 
$28. The Clarkes always offered to accept 
payments by monthly installments for 
which accommodation they only asked 5 
per cent per annum, but as they sold the 
tickets al an enormous advance th. y ex- 
acted not 5 per cent, but Bomething like 
80 per cent to 90 pir cent. The Clarkes, 
It was stated, sent out every week an av- 
rage of 70,000 pamphlets, all under closed 
envelopes so as to pass the British post- 
office, and their stamp bill amounted lo 
S3.5<i0 per week. The jury, after listening 
to many of the secrets of the lottery Bell- 
ing business, acquitted Page. 

"Every morning, lor over twenty 
years. 1 never went to the toilet with- 
jout fear and trembling, and I never 
'left it without having suffered agoniz- 
i Ing tortures. Many days I did not dare 
go at all. so much did I dread the ter- 
rible ordeal." 

These are the exact words of a suf- 
ferer from piles and we hear the same 
thing almost every day. It voices the 
sentiments of hundreds of thousands 
of others in this country today for it 
is estimated that of every ten persons 
we meet In church, the street, or the 
theater, seven are affected with piles. 
Martyrs and needless martyrs, too, 
for since the discovery of the marvel- 
ous Pyramid Pile Cure no one need 
suffer one moment longer. There 's 
now no excuse for having piles and 'f 
you continue to suffer from them you 
do not deserve a particle of sympathy, 
considering the chance we give you tu 
prove It to your own satisfaction wholly 
free of cost to you. 

Here Is a typical case: Mr. Ben- 
jamin Shaw, postmaster of Bland, 
New Mexico. He had suffered from 
aggravated piles for years, and was 
upon the eve of a serious surgical op- 
eration, believing that he had reached 
the limit, and that the operation of- 
fered the only possible means of re- 
lief and cure. Let ua quote his own 
words In his letter of Oct. 31, 1905: 
••1 was In great agony of mind and 
body. In the meantime, a gentleman 
told me of the virtue of your pryaniid 
remedy. I fortunately found it at the

I did not feel that an operation was 
necessary, and in three days I was 
able to return home, and a complete 
cure was accomplished to my great 
satisfaction and the surprise of the

24, 190<3. Sir: I note with very great con- 
cern the failure in your late conven- 
tion on joint interstate agreement to 
come to a basis of settlement of the 
bituminous mining scale of wages. You, 
in this business, have enjoyed a great 
industrial peace for many years, thanks 
to the joint trade agreement that has 
resulted from tlie action of your suc- 
cessive conventions. A strike such as 
is threatened on April 1 is a menace to 
the peace, the business interests and 
the general welfare of the country. I 
urge you to make another effort to 
avert such a calamity. You and Mr. 
Robbins are joint chairinen of the trade 
agreement committee of the National 
Civic Federation. It seems to me that 
this imposes an additional duty upon 
you both and gives an additional 
why each of you should join in

There Has Been immense Development 
of the Industry Recently. 

Stockholm, March 15.— The Immense 
development of the beet growing indus- 
try In Sweden is attracting attention 
among .sugar pixjducers all over the 
world. It is calculated that great ad- 
vantage is gained the inhabitants of 
Sweden through the development of this 
industry by affording the unemployed, 
though perhaps only periodically, the 
opportunity of earning good wages In 
the weeding and the gathering of the 
beet crops, besides other work connect- 
ed with the cultivation and industry. It 
also affords an opportunity for the 
poorer classes to develop an industry, 
the only agricultural employment in^ 
many parts of Sweden, which will en- 
able them to make any money. 


The program arranged by Mr. Sousa 
for his concert at the Lyceum Sunday 
evening presents a list of selections 
that are not only of exceptional bril- 
liance, but are certain to afford all 
(lasses of hearers several hours of 
g<-nuine satisfaction and delight. 

The "Oberon" overture, one of them. 
Is a most beautifully woven web of 
charming melody and Instrumental 
combination that suggest most subtly 
that my.storlous world, said to be peo- 
pled with elves, fays and mermaids. 
Oberon, the elfln king, has quarreled 
with his fairy partner and vows never 
again to be reconciled to her till he 
finds two lovers constant through every 
peril and temptation. The listener will 
note that Oberon's horn-call opens the 
overture, and will be fascinated by the 
irnpresslveness of the little phrase of 
only three notes which Weber has glvei^ 
to "the mellow-voiced French horns. 
Soon are heard the f.ilrles' dainty tip- 
toifeing as express- ' by the clarinets, 
speaking In accents hardly above a 
whisper. Sudd<" ' n single bold chord 
is Ijla/.oned out by trumpets and horns, 
suggestive of the element of knight- 
ly power. But most delightful of all 
for the ear and the heart is the haunt- 
ing melody that dominates the entire 
overture, "always exhaling like a subtle

W. I. Prince iias been appointed 
chiiirnum of a committee whicli will 
handle the applications for new mem- 
berships In the Duluth Boat club. 

The club is anxious to obtain from 
10 t" -"'I desirable new members. 
preferably young men who would 
make good material for the crews. 

The old members have been fur- 
nished witli application blanks, and 
requested to have them filled out by 
tliose de.slrous of joining the club this 
year. The cards will be turned over 
to a committee of which W. I. Prince 
Is the ehairmai^ and the applications 
will be examined by the members of 
this committee. 

The additional accommodations, 
which will be provided this year will 
make It po.sslble for the club to care 
for do\ible the number of members it 
had last year. 

A number of applications have been 
received for the life memberships, but 
several of the members of the com- 
mittee which is handling tiie sale of 
them, are out of the city, and the 
work is not fully under way yet.

The club will have on exhibition, an 
assortment of row boats, canoes, and 
1 launches some time before the end of 
I the month. 

Many of the members are planning 
to buy boats, canoes or launches this 
.Reason, and the club will exhibit the 
siimples and order the boats at one 
time. In this way .securing better prices 
than the members could if they or- 
dered Individually. 

The exhibit will include all kinds of 
rowboats and canoesi to suit the vary- 
ing tastes of the different members, 
and also a complete line of launches 
from a mere rovvboat with a gasoline 
engine of 1 'i horse power, which will 
cost about $12,".. to a large speed 
launch worth about $800. 

The boats will arrive here in about 
two week.s, and will be kept on ex- 
hibition for at least ten days.

The annual meeting of the club will 
be held on April 10. when the officers 
will be chosen f"r the coming year.

Chicago Man Had Better 

of Contest With Terry 


The Referee, However, 

Made No Decision at 

End of Bout. 

Philadelphia. March 15.— "Battllngr" 

Nelson of Chicago had the advantage 

of Terry McGovern of Brooklyn in 

their six-round bout which took place 

National Athletic club last. 

For the first three rounds the

There must be something to the claim 
of J. M. Lamb that the Copper country 
officials are really In favor of the 
league, however, or they would not go 
to the expense of another trip to Du- 
luth to talk the matter over, when they 
had apparently finally given up all 
thought of it. 

The fact is that the Copper Country- 
league is little better off than the 
North A four-club circuit, playing 
daily games soon palls oi\ the fans, and 
while it is true that there is a big sav- 
ing in railroad fares In such a com-

scarcely half a dozen solid blows 
struck, the men wrestling from one end 
of the ring to the other with the re- 
feree powerless to separate them. It 
had been agreed that the referee was 

i not to lay his hands on the men but 
simply warn them lo step back wii'iii 

I they rushed to a clinch. 

The repeated warnings had no ef- 

ifect on the fighters and the crowd 
hissed, groaned and cried "fake" and 
"lake them out of the ring." At ihu 
beginning of the fourth round the men 
began to fight as though they meant

that Nelson would land a stiff blow 
McGovern would grab him around the

It is doubtful if McGovern could 
have stood the gruelling for another 
round. There was some rough work in 
the early rounds by the Dane. He fre- 
quently used his head. 

Nel.son de.served the decision but as 
j no decisions are rendered when both

tions. A moment later the fight was on. 

Hound 1— Nelson missed a left and both 
clinched and it was twenty seconds be- 
lore they separated. The crowd hissed 
I and Nelson led with the left to the head. 
I They again clinched and the referee 
! wurned McGovern for holding. There was 
another clinch itnd McGovern si'Ut a hanl 
left to the head. They were clinched at 
the bell and as they went to their cor- 
ners there was nothing but hisses. 

Round 2— McGovern missed a left for 
the wind and then they again began to 
wrestle. McGovern sent a left to the 
wind and left and right to head. They 
rushed to a clinch and then McGovern 
drove a right to tiie head, which Jarred 
the Battler. Nelson was cautioned for 
using his shoulder. Nelson missed a 
straight left and again they clinched. 
The LK)ys did not move six ftet from the 
center of the ring and were still clinched 
at the bell. Groans and hisses greeted 
them as they went to iheir corners. 

Round 2— McGovern tried the left to 
wind twice, but was blocked in both at- 
tempts. They clinciied and the referee 
eould not get them to break. Nel.son 
drove two lefts to face and there was 
the same old clinch. McGovern upper- 
cut with a hard right and then .sent a 
right to the jaw. Nelson sent a left to 
the head and ducked a vicious left. N' 1- 
son sent another left to the face and the 
men were clinched at the gong. 

Round 4— McGovern swung wildly with 
his right, but drove a left to the wind. 
Nelson sent a left to the face and then 
they clinched and wrestled across the 
ring. Nels<jn pouoded McGovern's kid- 
neys in the clinch. Nelson sent a light 
left lo face and McGovern mi.ssed a swing 
for the jaw. Nelson was growing stron- 
ger while McGovern seemed to be weak- 
ening. Nelson sent a hard left and a 
right to the jaw and McGovern was weak 
as he went to his corner. 

Round 6— McGovern .sent a left to the 
head and Nelson countered with a left 
to the wind. Nelson sent a light left to 
the stomach. McGovern rushed to a 

clinch and refused to break when ordered 
to the f.aee, but the blows did not have 
any apparent effect on Nelson. When 
they broke Nelson drove a terrific ritht 
to McGovern's jaw, which made the 
Brooklyn boy wobbly. They chnched 
and as they broke away the boll rang. 

Round fr— Nelson missed a right swin.s 
and they rushed to a clinch. McGovern 
mis.sed a right for the wind and then 
sent a light left to the face and then 
missed a terrilic right for McGovern's

"Eat what agrees with you and you 
have solved the diet question," said 
Frank Gotch, the wrestling giant oCj 
Humboldt, Iowa, and champion of | 
America, today. Gotch arri\ed in Du- 
luth last evening and is at the Spald- 
ing. He will meet Billy Maynard, the 
well-known local wrestler, in a handi- 
cap match at the Lyceum this evening,. 

"There is nothing remarkable in that 
statement," continued the big wrestler, 
"and everyone is supposed lo try to 
eat the things that agree with then., 
but they don't. That is just it! Tnat 
Is what causes the indigestion and 
makes pessimists out of men who ought 
to know better. I have never really 
dieted in my life, simply stuck to the 
rule that 1 ought only to eat Ihln^.^ 
which agree with me. And p< ople can 
easily tell what food agrees with them. 
Of course, that is quite an easy rule 
for me to follow as almost everything 
agrees with me. 

"1 have never taken a drink of liquor 
or smoked in all my life and I think 
that' I feel belter for it. It is a part of 
my business, however, to ke* p in the 
best po.ssible condition, physically, alt 
the time. 1 imagine smoking must be 
a very pleasant pastime and i can see 
no harm in taking a drink 01 two now 
and then, but I have kept away from 
both thus far so 1 might as well do it a 
little while longer. Pos.slbly In a feu 
years I will need 'Dutch courage' to 
help mc win matches. 1 have no need 
of it now. , 

"I am feeling in very good health now 
although, of course, travel is very tir- 
ing. The match this evening should be 
a good one as from what I have heard 
of Maynard, 1 know him to be a clever 

"1 have been victorious In all my 
matches this year and the only man of 
any gi-eat magnitude that 1 have 
downed is Appollo. whom I met in 
.Montreal. I wrestled him Greco-Ko- 
inan style and that Is not my long 
suit. He was heavier than I and si,- 
fat that I could hardly reach around 
him. but after tugging away for about 
an hour, 1 got my first fall. 

"Wrestling Is very well patronized in 
the East, and in New York and other 
laige cities there are always many 
women present. The ladies occupy 
boxes at tlie ringside with their escorts 
and wear all their best clothes." 

Gotch is a strapping fellow and loo'its 
more like a college football player 
than a tirofesslonal wrestler. He talks 
like an alumnus of Yale or the Univer- 
sity of Minnesota, has a winning smile; 
Is proud of the fact that he was born 
in Iowa and likes lots of sleep. 

Maynard and Gotch had never seen 
each other until they met in the lobby 
of the Spalding this noon. 


Something May be Sprung in Swamp 
Land Matter Soon. 

C. S. Wilson of Duluth, who is inter- . 
esied as attorney in quite a number of 
swamp land cases, believes that the slate 
Is in grave danger of losing a large por- 
tion of its swamp land holdings thr<^gh 
a deeision which lias been reaclietl in tlie 
land and legal department in Washington. 
Attorney General Young has gone to 
Washington to confer with tlie interior 
department there and it is not believed 
that he would have done so had he not re- 
ceived some intimation that the state's 
title to swamp lands was Imperilled. 
Nothing definite regarding the decision 
can be learned, but Attorney 
Young's departure for Washington is 
taken as signilicani that a crisis lias been 

Aci>ording to Mr. Wils.Jii and other au- 
thorities the Whole qu*>stion as to llio 
state's title lo this land arises from ilio 
fact that the stale did not uniil com- 
parativelv recent years select the land ol- 
ft-red by the federal government. Tho 
interior department in 1903 made a de- 
cision giving the swamp lands to tlie 
state, tlie stale's claim being found<'d on 
a law passed in ISUO by congress, which 
set fortii tliut the swamp lands should 
be selected Ity the state within two years 
after the act had become a law. This se- 
lection was not made in the prescribed 
time, henee the contention that the state's 
title is not a valid on*.. 

This law of 1H(;(» has been submitted to 
Attorney General Moody for an opinion 
upon it; and .Secretary Hiteheoek lias 
also set forth for tlie benefit of the attor- 
nev general, all of the f.icts in the case 
on both sides. This opinion of the at- 
tornev general is awaite<l anxiously, and 
while' it is not final, it will probably have 
great weight with the interior department 
in making its deeision. 


Serious Accident to Car Narrowly Averted 
by Bridge Tender. 

Chicago, Mareii 15.- A crowded electric 
car on North avenue ran over the abut- 
ment of a temporary bridge over a. 
branch of the Chleago river last night 
and a serious accident was averted only 
bv the presence of mind of the bridge 
tender. The bridge, wliieli swing- 
ing open, was turned back so that tlie 
car, instead of plunging into the river, 
which is twenty-two feet deep at that 
point, struek a scow, wlileh supports 
tile bridge. The rear wheels rennuned 
on the track, while the front of tho 
car rested on the scow, fifteen feet be- 
low the stn-et level. The passengers 
were piled up against the front door of 
the ear, and in the struggle to escape, 
several were injured. One, Mrs. Eliza- 
beth Bluhm, may be fatally injured. 


Believed Five Men in Stillwater Prison 
Were Wrongfully Convicted. 

St. Paul, Ma,reh 15.— Five prisoners have 
lieen languishing in the Stillwater prison 
for seven years. They are H. S. Minot, 
J. C. Hall, C. F. Hoffman and Link Thay- 
er, accused of holding up a Great North- 
ern passenger at Carlisle, a short dis- 
tance from Fergus Falls. A vigorous 
campaign has been started to release 
these prisoners, headed by C. C. Houpt, 
United States district attorney, who act- 
ed as their attorney when they were con- 

As soon as Attorney General Young re- 
turns from his Southern trip, application 
will be made by the interested, parties to 
call a special session of the board of par- 
dons so that the eases can bo presented 
to the board on the grounds that the men 
are not the highwaymen who held up the 
train. Ix)uis W. Hill, vice president of 
the Great Northern, has called on Chief 
Justice Start and assured him, from what 
has since transpired, that he is confident

The Theory That Max 

Graf Was Murdered 

is Disproved. 

Escanaba— L. X. Booth, a wood's 
foreman for the Escanaba Woodenware 
company, claims that on the evening of 
Jan. 2 he .saw Max Graf, who disap- 
peared from Xahma on that dale, and 
for whom his relatives and Delta coun- 
ty officials have taeeji .searching for 
nearly two months. Booth says he saw 
Graf at the Xorlhwestern depot, in 
Escanaba. and that the young man told 
him he was going to lake the Xorlh- 
western train south for his home. Graf 
was seen to leave Xahma with two 
companions, and it was feared that he 
was murdered for his money and his 
body concealed in the woods. 

Menominee— The village of Hayes, 
west of Menominee, is agitated by mys- 
terious liquor raids. The saloon of 
William Strehlough had been broken 
into and every keg, case and barrel had 
been opened and the contents allowed 
to run on the floor. A match had been 
applied to the liquor, and when Mr. 
Strehlough arrived In the morning he 
found the interior of the liquor room 
blackened and charred. The clock over 
the bar had been stopped at 1 o'clock. 
At about the same hour three men tried 
to force their way into the saloon of 
George Burger. Burger heard the men, 
and engaged the marauders in "battle. 
Burger had one arm broken in the fray, 
but he carried away a large section of 
one of the saloon wreckers" ears as a 
souvenir. Several other places were 
visited during the nfghi. but the wreck- 
ers failed to gain an entrance. 

Newberry — Sheriff Louks of Luc!« 
county went to the .Soo the other day 
and arrested one Bert Webb, warned 
at Newberry on a charge of obtaining ^ — —— ^— ^ ^— ^-^— ^ — ^^^» 
money from the Michigan Iron (:<)m- _y^,^^„ ^lir lASI'VAnVft

by a foreman at the wood camps, and 
secured $43 by representing himself to 
be the party in whose favor they were 
drawn. A warrant is also out for 
Robert Beaudin, who is accused of be- 
ing a party to the transaction. 

Calumet— E. R. Elliott, superintend- 
ent of the Mass. Xegaunee and Jackson 
iron mines of the Cleveland-Cliffs Iron 
company, on the Marquette range, has 
resigned to assume the position of gen- 

I eral manager of a Cuban company.

London, Mar<.h 15— 'Shi- is a perfect lit-

nraiched. She would take to any one who 
took to her; there is not a trace of vice

.After pronouncing this panegyric the

a live Parry katigaroo has been Iwought 
to Europe and the value of the pair is 
put down at SSn>). 

They are surpas.sed in beauty of kan-

Irpe, promin»nt oars, lon^ silky

with dark pencilings around the neck and

Lofty Structure to be 
Erected at the James- 
town Exposition. 

Norfolk, Va., March 15.— An English 
company has applied for a conces.slon 
to erect at the Jamestown €xpo.sition 
a tower, which will In height 
the famous Tour Eiffel of Paris, which 
for seventeen years has ranked as one 

of the wonders of the world. 

This lofty structure, though it will 
be situiited nearly twenty miles fronj 
tlie sea, may be seen by captains 
of the coast steamers plying the At- 
lantic. Ten thousand or more 
dt.H.iiit lights will be attached to the 
tower and a mammoth searclilight 
placed at its apex will bathe the tower 
for miles around with brigtit llgnt. 

It will require no less than six re- 
la js of elevator.s to reach the top. 
Th'se various "'lifts," as they are called 
In England, will terminate at platforms 
or stories, where it will be necessary 
to ehauge cars. The cable required for 
eaeh series of elevators will be not less 
than J50 feet long, or equal to the Kngtli 
required for a fair-sized skyscraper. 

The company planning this gigantic 
enterprise have also under contempla- 
tion a scheme of amusements to be lo- 
cated on the several dlff«-ient floors, 
.and they purpose making the tower a 
veritable exposition in itself. When It 
is reallze<l th.nt today, seventeen years 
aft«r the Eiff»-1 niasterpie<-e of engl- 
net ring was reared, it will be im.igined 
what interest will be created by this 
bifiier structure. 


Judge Morris Gives Deci- 
sion Against Virginia 
Lumber Company. 

Plaintiffs Claim Infringe- 
ment of Patent on Log 
Loading Device. 

In the suit for accounting and appli- 
cation for permanent injunction against 
using a patented car device, brought 
by George W. Decker of Newport, Kan., 
and the Clyde Iron Works of Dulutfi the Virginia Lumber company. 
Judge Morris in United States court 
last night granted the request for an 
injunction and left the matter of the 
accounting to the master in chancery, 
A. L. Agatln, who will have the job ol 
Iniding out wliat is due tlie plaintii'fs. 

J. H. Bryson of St. Paul, Mo., repre- 
sented Mr. Decker and the Clyde Iron 
works and J. T. Watson of Dululh 
represented the Virginia Lutnber com- 

It was charged in the complaint that 
the defendant company was using whai 
is called the Cody log loading device, 
which it is claimed Infringes the patent 
held by the plaintiffs. According to the 
plaintiJ'fs, George W. Decker invented 
and later patented certain car loading 
apparatus. This it is claimed, was in 
the year 1899. Decker clanuh to be the 
original inventor of the car-loading 
machine. Subsequent to the issuanee 
of the first patent, he was granted olhe 
patents on improvements to Llie oriei- 1 
nal machine ko that he now thoroughly j 
covers the field in this line, llie plain- 
tiff alleges. Not long after eecurinjj 
the first patent Mr. Decker as.signed the 
right to niauufacture the apparatus to 
the P. H. and P. M. Boots company o« 
Connersvllle, Ind., but shortly after- 
wards a cancellation of this contract 
took place and the Clyde Iron works of 
Duluih was given the right to manu- 
facture the machine, the Indiana con;- 
pany reliiuiuishing all right in the mat- 

The value of the apparatus as a labor 
and time saver became known to log- 
ging concerns through Northern Minne- 
.sota and Wisconsin and the machiiie 
soon came into general use. Some of 
the logging companies u.sed the ma- 
chine, It Is claimed, without permission, 
or one very similar to It, purchasing it 
from some comjjany other tlian the 
local concern. Some time ago suit was 
brought against the Northwestern Sup- 
ply company for Infringement of pat- 
ents and the court granted a permanent 
injunction to the plaintiff, 
suit is pending in Wisconsin. 

The Laxative of 

K nown Quaut^ 

There are two classes of remedies; tliose of known qnal- 
ity and which are permanently beneficial in effect, acting 
grently, In harmony with iiatnre, when nature needs assist- 
ance; and another claiss, composed of preparations of 
unknown, uncertain and inferior character, acting tempo- 
rarily, but injurion.sly, as a result of foreiiig" the natural 
functions unnecessarily. Cue of the most exceptional of 
the remedies <.r known quality and excellence is the ever 
pleasant Syrup of Figs, manufactured by the California 
Fig: Syrup Co., which represents the active principles of 
plants, known to act most beneficially, In a pleasant syrup, 
in which the wholesome Callforniau blue figs are used to con- 
tribute their rich, yet delicate, fruity flavor. It is the remedy 
of all remedies to sweeten and refresh and cleanse the system 
gently and naturally, and to assist one in overcoming consti- 
pation and the many ills resulting therefrom. Its active princi- 
ples and quality are known to physicians generally, and the 
remedy has therefore met with their approval, as well as with 
the favor of many millions of well informed persons who know 
of their own personal knowledge and from actual experience 
that it is a most excellent laxative remedy. We do not claim that 
it will cure all manner of ills, but recommend it for what it really 
represents, a laxative remedy of known quality and excellence, 
containing nothing of an objectionable or injurious character. 
There are two classes of purchasers; those who are informed 
as to the quality of what they buy and the reasons for the excellence 
of articles of exceptional merit, and who do not lack courage to go

Local Attorneys Favor-

Despite Few Mistakes. 

Copies of tlie new code of laws are 
i being received from time to time oy 
JBtme of the county officials and oy 
some of the local members of the bar 
who have placed their orders for t he- 
books, but the demand here Is still 
greatly in excess of the supply and 
those fortunate enough to i»ossess cop- 
ies are fretiuently called on to loan 

Hardly a day pa.sses wherein atten- 
tion is not called In one or another 
part of the state to some mistake or 
error in*the new code, but on the whole 
the local attorneys who have spent any 
considei-able time studying the book, 
say that it has a great many advant- 
ageous features and that these far 
overshadow any small mistakes. They 
■say that the mistakes will ptrobably 
j all be found and corrected by the leg- 
islature anyway. 

Speaking of the copy of the new 
which he has received, H. H. Phelps 

"I am quite well pleased with the 
new code. I find that the statutes 
have been condensed and many of the 
useless portions of the old laws have 
been left out. The book is well in- 
dexed and splendidly annotated. It 
undoubtedly has many mistakes, but 
these can be corrected and we will have 
our state laws In a conden.sed form and 
easy to gel at when we want them."

Lawrence and his younger brother, 
Louis, who was a witness in his behalf, 
walked out of the court happy over his

out by the other door chagrlnged over 
the failure of the state to convict Law- 

One of the principal feature of the 
case was that the three brothers were 
pi-actically the only witne.sses. One 
other outsider, who loaned Lawrence 
some money when lie was on the

New and Old Uses of Current for Power 

New York, March 15.— Forty-two mil- 
lion dollars ropresents the advance 
made by the electrical industr>' last 
J ear. Figures Just completed by New 
York experts prove that the greatest 
gain ever made came In ltK)5. In the 
previous year the gain was only 10 
per cent. Last year an Increase of 
from 1175,500.000 to $217,000,000 shows 
that the industry took a jump of 20 
per cent. 

The motor output Increased $7,000,000 
in value. Telephone apparatus beat 
this record by half a million. Wire 
and cable manufacturers gained $5,- 
000,000. A still larger increase is shown

Pig Buried 100 Days is 

Found Alive by 


Rolla— After the snow j^torm ;n the lat- 
ter part of November. J. E. Kmght of 
Ilunsboro missed a fine 4W-pound pig. 
He searihed for it unsuccsslully, una 
concluded that the animal w;is gone lor 
good. Recently, in shoveling :i road to a 
havstack, he unearth.-d the animal, whicli 
had burrow<d into tlie stack, it was stlJl 
alive, but much reduced Ih Hesh. During 
its imprisomnent of nearly UHi days tlie 
pig had .subsisted on hay and snow, ana 
had devoured a good portion of the stacK. 
The animal ha? been earefuily fed smce 
its niease and is now in normal health 
and h.-gj:mi:ig to take on flesh again. 

Dickiiison— Thtre i*' a bonus of 10 cents 
for all babies born in this county. Tjn- 
foriunately, however, this bonus does not 
Ro to the parents but to the physician 
who reports the birth. At the last regu- 
lar meeing of he eiy council Dr. Perkins 
pre=ened a bill for fees for filing vital 
statistics, covering a period of two yt-ar.s. 
There was some surprise when tiit mil 
was presented, hut an jexamlnation of tno 
law shows that physicians of the city 
and coinitv are allowed 10 cents for each 
birth or death reported. Tht law has 
been in force for several years, but was 
apparently not discovered by the physi- 
cians till now. - ,T o 
Pargo— A eon?mlttee. con.=isting of H. a. 
Forkert and D. S. Blair of North Dakota 
and H. J. Hanson of Minnesota, app<jint- 
ed bv the Northwestern Farmer.^' associa- 
tion "to investigate a proposition made by 
Ashland, Wis.; for the establishment of 
terminal elevators in that city, have pre- 
pared a report entirely favorable to the 
Icatlon of the elevators in that city. The 
report deals largely with the shipping fa- 
cilities both to and from Ashland, and 
recommends the erection of the elevators 
on the site formerly occupied by the dock 
and plant of the Ashland Lumber com- 
pany, an option on this property for $40,- 
000 having been secured 

The rommittee also recommended that 
a separate fund be raised by permitting 
members of the association to sub- 
scribe for stock in the terminal ele- 
vator company so that the ownership 
of shares In the comp.'tny siiall be con- 
fined as far as possible to members of 
the association. 


Wagner— The 12-year-old son of John 
Verrizina, a well-known farmer living 
11 miles northeast of here, Is dead as 
the result of a kick from a vicious 
horse. The animal kicked the boy in 
the forehead, fracturing his skull and 
breaking "several bones in the face. 
Phvsieians were summoned from near- 
by towns and everything possible was 
done to save the boy's life, hut he died 
forty-eight hours after being injured. 

Sioux Falls— W. G. Porter of this city, 
president of the Republican State Lea- 
gue of South Dakota, has received a 
letter from Leslie M. Shaw, secretary 
of the treasury, acknowledging receipt 
of an invitation extended to him by- 
President Porter on behalf of the state 
league to address the biennial conven- 
tion of the league at Sioux Falls on 
June 4 next. Secretary Shaw virtually 
accepts the Invitation, and therefore 
will be the principal speaker at the bi- 
ennial convention of the state league. 
The convention will be held on the 
evening before the day of the Republi- 
can state convention lor the nominal 
tion of a state ticket.

.. tivity in politics, saying It has been 
iicreasing since IS'J6. Corporations are 
10 p.>!itics. the senator •" " • d, becaus 
n.l to hu.sin.-ss. Uo-y '•■^l '^'^^ their i .y may 

i. ■ If troubled any time be the sul»j'-ei of attacks, 
"' ""' ' either by legislatures or by administra- 
tive officers. He said that when he in- 
troduced a resolution creating a com- 
mi.-'slon to frame a national Incorpora- 
tion act for railroads, he believed it un- 
necessarv to seek either the ci-i.pora- 
tion or the consent of the stales. But 
today, he said, upon reflection, he was 
convinced it was wiser to S(.-cure the co- 
operation of both the United States and 
the states. National Incorporation, he 
contended, contemplated a general law 
for the incorporation of national rail- 
wavs engaged in interstate commerce. 

"This." he thought, "should limit 
stock and bond issues to the cash paid 
in or to the value of the property ac- 
quire*!, and no issue perudtted, save 
v\ith the approval of the 
commerc" commission." 

Senator Newlands said it is plain th .■ 
|.,,.1.U are restive under existing con- 
«iilion.<i. They reallxe, he said, that 
men prominent In the gr^t industrial 
corporations are getting control over 
the transportation of the country, "and 
unless we unify and simplify this con- 
trol. In a fow thoroughly controlled 
great national corporations, whose 
tinanees and operations can be easily 
understood and whose functions will 
h.- entirely taken out of politics, they 
drift to national ownership as the 
..4oU St solution." 

Senator Newlands suggested that tho 
^argument in support of national own- 
ership was a .sitnple and taking one. 
I "tiovernment ownership." he said, 
■•jjresents no ditttcultles, either co.a- 
stitutlonal or practical, except pos- 
sibly the difficulty of honest and effi- 
cient administi-ation, and the country 
will drift to It unless the existing

Logan & Br.\an, Chicago: Wheat- At 
no time today did market .show any

evident there was very little for sale. 
This condition, when we consider break

courwged some buying of other repre- 
sentative railroad stocks. The success 
of the professionals in shaking out 
holdings ot People's Gas stimulated at- 
tacks against other specialties, and 
there was increasing weakness of 
Stocks of this class. People's Gas | 
yielded 2V4, Lead 2, Consolidated Gas 
1%. and Reading and Smelting 1. ; 

The general market was stagnant, 
but the public utilities made large addi- 
tional declines. Chicago Union Trac- | 
tlon preferred lost 1, the common 1, | 
People's Gas 1, Consolidated Gas 3'4, 
Brooklyn Union Gas 7, Virginia-Caro- 
lina Uhemhal IH. American Cotton Oil 
1 and Colorado Southern second pre- 
ferred 2Vit. There were some small ral- 
lies before noon. Bonds were steady. 

The recent wholesale liquidaiion in cer- 1 
tain stocks gave an undercurrent of 
weakness to the entire group of special- 
lies. Most of the better known railroads, 
though neglect«Hl, showed no weakness. 
Southern Railway- started upwards, but 
halted before rising a full point. Atlan- 
tic Coast Line, National Biscuit. United

What little business there was in the 
late afternoon consisted in buying orders 
and prices accordingly advanced slight- 
ly. Atlantic Coast Line recovered to a 
point above yesterday's close. Canada 
Southern and International Paper pre- 
ferred gave way 1 and Denver & Rio 
Grande preferred l'^- 

The hardening tendency of railroad 
stocks was interrupted by the relapse in 
specialties. Consolidated Gas and Chi- 
cago Ujiion Traction preferred lost their 
rallies and 4t\l lower than before, the 
former losing h^^, and the latter B'.i.. 
Metropolitan Street Railwav and Tennes- 
see Coal declined T.4 and New York Cen- 
tral, Central Leather preferred and Gen- 
eral Electrk 1. The rise in the call money 
rate lo 9 per cent helped to check the 
hardening tendency. Missouri Pacific lost

was to bei $10 on Blues 
race, and if h':' won to 
bet it all on Rolling Boer across the 
board in the fifth race; but it BIjcs lost, 
only $5 was to go across the board oa 
Rolling Boer. , , . „* 

••Of course, the sensational victot-y of 
Rolling Boer that day Is .still rem. mbi-red 
bv the regulars. Turner was up "n the 
favorite. The Rhymer, at 2 to 1, and Pat- 
ton rode Ihe Boer, whose odds w« re any- from 40 to 200 to 1. finally closing 
at 60. Turner and Patton had it osit 
down the stretch, and good jud^'-s 
me that Patton put It over Turner In 
this particular race. Rhymer appai-ent- 
ly had the race won. wh^-n Turner stopped 
riding and Patton Just nosed him out 

at the wire. , ., , .. :„ 

"Now the funny part of this story is 
my friend did exactly as I in.slructed 
him, but got badly rattled when he saw 
the opt-ning odds, so^ne 20, some 30, 
some 200 to l-I forgot to tell him to 
expect long odds— so when he saw 40, 12 
and 7, he took it for fear the price 
would be < ut. ' .-„..». 

•Blu. s won at 5 to 1, making $60 to bo 
placed on RoMlng Boer, for which ne 
accepted 800 to 20, 240 to 30, 14u to 20 from 
Bill Jakeman. Of course, Patton got 
his rentiirv. and my lommlssloner got 
his, and I got mine, quitting $1,(.HX) to 
the good on the day. And maybe the 
rest of the boys weren't sore for gel- 
ting left'.' But it afterward developed 
that one of the crowd had been quietly 
following the tip and actually woii 
$1,700 on the race, oio of Ills tickets 
calling 400 to 2 from Orlaiid.j Jones. 

"Patton joined the outlaws when 
N«'wport opened, and has recently been 
riding there, where he has a few horses 
of Ills own. He was among the leaders 
In the list of riding Jockeys, and one

Vew York Press: "Talking about long 
f=hots puts me in mind of the first time 1 
met Jockey Patton." said one of a group 
of snorts seated in an uptown cafe. It 
happened one Sunday morning In 
Glimmer of 1900, In a barl>cr shop at 
lliXvnie L I, where Pattons father 
lives Patton was riding for W. B. Jen- 

ings at that time. The barber was par- 

ieiflarly anxious that 1 should meet Mr. 
Pa ton ' so an Introduction followed, and 
in a few minutes we were discussing the 
racing events of the day. . . „, . 

•• -Do you ever play long shots?' he 

""" 'Why yes, occasionally,' I replied. 

•• 'Weil'' said he, 'I'll put you next to a 
2-vear-old that we have, that 1 worked 
flve-elKhths in 1 :00 flat. We expect to start 
him Tiext week. Get down across the 
board and put a small bet on for me. 

••I promised to do so, and one day In the 
following week I saw Rolling Boer (for 
that was the horse's name) among the 
overnight entries. Accordingly I went to 
Gravesend next day to play the good 
thing the board, getting 60. 20 and 
10 for my money, only to see Rolling 
Boer finish a beautiful ninth or tenth. I 
saw Patton In the paddock after the race, 
apd he told me that the Boer wouldn't 
'run for sour apples, but,' said he, 'dont 
be scared. He's going to run to his 
work some day, and then I'll get all the 
monev, so take my tip and stick to this 
one and don't let him get away from

of friends at the Continental

to illustrate two things — first, the un- 
erring accuracy of Al B. Hamilton's 
aim, and again the expedients that are 
resorted lo in order to procure an 
original brand. 

•'I have heard of cattle men using 
a frying pan, railroad fish plates and 
other unusual .shapets In metals as 
branding Irons, but, after all, I think 
Hamilton's was perhaps the most orlg- 

'"The company by which Hamilton 
was employed had about thirty-five 
head of hogs that were continually 
getting mixed up with the porkers be- 
longing to others, and he determined 
to put a brand upon his animals that 
would prevent any chance of mistaken 

"With some little difficulty Hamil- 
ton got all of the company's hogs in 
an Inclosure, went to the office, se- 
cured hs 44-callber revolver and a 
supply of cartridges, and seated him- 
self on the fence surrounding the pigs.

to a single one of the animals. Hamil- 
ton. In the course of perhaps fifteen 
minutes, had shot the tall from each. 
He did not waste more than half a 
dozen shots in doing It, nor was a 
single hog injured save that its tall 
was clipped off clean. That feat gave 
him the title of champion shot of the

New York, March 15.-The trend of 
opening prices in the stock niaikct to- 
day was towards a lower level, al- 
though not very decidedly so. Dealings 
were small and changes generally nar- 
row. The principal declines were Ana- 
conda, 2%; Locomotive, National Lead 
and Northern Pacific, about a point, 
and Amalgamated Copper, %. , », , 
Opening losses were recovered, but 
the market became highly irregular, 
the free selling of People's Gas causing 
some concern. Loui.sviiie & Nashville 
was again favored by the bulls »nd got 
up 2 points. The rise in tliis stock en- 
couraged some buying of oilier leire- 
sentuiivw railroad slocks. The .success 
of the protessi(Uials in shaking out 
holdings ol People's Gas slimulaled at- 
tacks against other specialties, and 
there was increasing weakness ot

yielded 2%, Lead 2, Consolidated Gas 
1%. and Reading and Smelting 1. 

The general market was stagnant, 
but the public utilities made large addi- 
\ tional declines. Chicago Union Trac- 
tion preferred lost 1, the common 1, 
' Pe<>ples Gas 1, Consolidated tJas 3%, 
1 Brooklyn Union Gas 7, Virginia-Card- 
; lina Chemical 1%, American Cotton Oil 
, 1 and Colorado Southern second pre- 
ferred 2%. There were some small ral- 
i lies before noon. Bonds were steady. 
: Tlie recent wholesale Ikiuidaiion in cer- 
tain stocks gave an undercurrent of 
: weakness to the entire group of special- 
ties. Most of tiie better known railritads, 
though neglected, showed no weakness. 
Southern Railway- started upwards, but 
', halted before rising a full point. Allan 
( tic Coast Line, National Biscuit. 

States Rubber flrst preferreti and Repub 
i lie Steel preferred ex-dividend fell off 1 
' and Hide & Leather preferred 1%, Knick- 
j erbocker Ice moved up 1% and New York, 
' Chicago & St. IjOuIs 2. 

I What little business there was in the 
I liUe afternoon consisted in buying orders 
1 and prices accordingly advanced slighl- 
; ly. Atlantic Coast Line recovered to a 
, point above yesterday's clitse. Canada 
I Southern and International Paper pre- 
' ferii d gave way 1 and Denver & Rio 
I Gr.uid"- preferred 1%. 

! The hardening tendency of railroad 
stocks was interrupted by the relapse in 
specialties. Consolidated Gas and Chi- 
cago Uiuon rractlon preferred lost their 
rjillies and Jell lower than before, the 
former U.sing &%, and the latter 6%. 
Metropolitan Street R.ailwav and Tennert- 
see Coal declined 1% and New York t eii- 
irai. Central Leather prefened and Gen- 
eral Klectrk 1. The in the call money 
rate to » ptr cent helped to check the 
hardening tendency. Mis.soari Pacttle lost

manner and felt he wonld make cood 
•some day.' So 1 concluded lo follow the 
tip for a few starts. Well, the next start 
came a few days later at the same 
track. This time 1 got KiO, 40 and 20, and 
had the satisfaction of seeing Kol!i:ig 
Boer hnish an excellent lourili in a 
big field, coming fast at the finish. 

■' 'Now, you see,' said Pat ton, after the 
race, '1 was catclilng em all al the fln- 
i'-h, but the Boer wouldn't run for the 
fust auarter; but 111 gel him off in the 
lead one of these days and put the hooks 
into him and keep him there, or he 11 
know he has been to the races.' 

"Patton always had a good explanation 
ready after each race, and was supremely 
confident that noihing could keep him 
from finally landing a purse, and candidly 
I believed he would do .so. 1 was on 
tand again when Rolling B»cr made his 
third start, only to see him ignumuiious- 
ly defeated and finish about sixth m a 
field of a dozen. Pallon begged me hard- 
er than ever not to forsake him. "I II 
win sure next time, he said. "The Boer 
ccrlainlv is a morning glory; but hell 
lake it" into his head lo run some day 
and then there'll be something doing.' 

•'In the meantime all the rest of the 
boys In pos.session of this stable infor- 
mation concluded that Rolling Boer 
was a dead one. and to play hnn again 
would be throwing good money alter bad. 
1 had about come to the .«ame conclu- 
sion when I saw the counterfeit's name 
among the Oravesend entries for /Tues- 
dav Now. honestly. 1 did noi think he 
hail a ghost of a chance, y- i did not 
teel safe in letting him run loose; then 
a^ain 1 could not possibly go lo the track 
that day, having some other btisiness 
attend to. I hiially compromised 
.sending a friend of mine, who likes 
see tlic ponies run. After carefully 
struciing him what to do, 1 pei led 
some bills from my roll. My Inst ructions 
wire simple. He was lo bti $1') on blues 
to win the third race, and if h" won to 
l>et it all on Rolling Boer across the 
board in the lifih race; but it Blaes lost, 
only $5 was to go across the board on 

Roiling Boer. ■ ,„ „ ^, 

••Of course, the sensational victory of 
Rolling Boer that day is still reiiiembc-red 
by the regulars. Turner was up •"> ^h® 
fi.vorite. The Rhymer, at 2 to 1, and I at- 
ton rode the Boer, whose odds \v. re any- 
where from 40 to '200 to 1, finally closing 
at 60. Turner and Patton had 11 out a I 
down the slietch, and good judges tell 
me that Paiton put It over 1 uriier in 
this particular race. Rhymer apparent-

"It Is doubtful whether the Ice com- 
panies will cut any ice from the lake 
this year or not," said a Duluth lee 
dealer this morning, when asked if the 

I present cijld snap would not enable 
them to gather their usual crop from 
the lake In spite of all reports to the 

I contrary. 

••We can't tell yet whether the ice will 
get thick enough to use or not, and it 
all depends on the weather for the next 
few days. I measured the ice out near 
Twentieth avenue ea-st. and it was four 
inches thick there. It should be ten or 
eleven Inches thick before it is tit to 
use, so you see thei-e is a question as to 

1 whe'her or not it will be of any use to 
us this year." 

Closer to the shore of Park Point the 
ico is undoubit-dly thicker than it Is at 
the point it was measured, but under

"I didn't pick up any Ideas in the East 
that will be Jjarticularly valuable in con- 
nection with the building and (H)eraUng 
of an outdoor place of amusement in 
Duluth along the Chicago White City 
lines." said John Panton of the Panton 
& White Co., who returned from New 
York, where he has been purchasing a 
fine line of spring and summer goods 
for the Glass Block store. Mr. Panton 
started the White City movement in Du- 
luth, and his return has been awaited by 
the committee having the matter In 
chargu before awarding the contract for 
building the amu.sement place, and be- 
fore deciding drtinitely upon ccrtam 
other armngenients. 

••All the reports 1 did hear concerning

do not think there is any doubt that the

some cases on a much larger ana more , 
pretentious scale than oefore. The indi- ; 
cations are that a number of otlier resorts ; 
of the kind will ge estabhshed this year j 
In different parts of the country, several 
cities are planning, like Duluth, on es- 
tablishing them. 

•The lact iliai there will be a larger 
number than ever before will probably 
result In the getting of better attrac- 
tions for the individual pleasure grounds, 
for ilie greater demand there is lor the 
shows tiie greater wiU be the rivalry 
among the show managers, wiiich will 
mean a better class ot attractions all 
around, especially wliere the r>sorts are 
close enough together so attractions may 
travel from one to the other, as between 
LHiluth and Minneapolis, without going 
to too great expense. 

•I find business condition In the East 
very satisfactory. Prosperity appears to 
be general throughout the country. The 
Easterners have come to a realization of 
the importance of the West, and their 
altitude toward this section of tlie coun- 
try shows a good deal more respect than 
it did a few yevixs ago. As some one lias 
said before, the West can get along with- 
out the East, but thp East could not gel 
along without the West. 

•I was successTul in purchasing a fme 
line of spring and summer goods, many 
of he lines being exciJBive. Tliey will 
be ready for the inspecuon of our Duluth 
patruns very shortly."

Our hobby-horse carries us too far for our pock- 
ets, sometimes. But we will have a Children's Store 
on oiir second floor that is the peer of any in the 
country, in size, appearance and in the quality of 
the clothes we sell. 

Ladies visiting us now can see a great difference 
from what there used to be on the second floor of 
the Burrows building — and it always was by far 
the largest and best Children's department in 

Beautiful show cases have been placed in a 
newly arranged, comfortable Ladies' Parlor, where 
it is a pleasure to shop. The new goods we show 
will be a revelation to the mothers in Duluth, and 
as we are about the only concern in this city doing 
business according to a strictly one-price system, 
a decided fall from the Ten-Per-Centers' fancy 
prices will be noticed. 

To give you the best at as low a price as it can 
be sold by a big store with modern methods, to 
play no favorites, to give no rebates to one while 
overcharging the next customer — briefly to run a 
good and reliable store — such is our hobby-horse. 

Will you ride with us?

and clearer than that taken from close 
' to the shore of the point, and unless the 
I Held is thick enoug'i to cut at a. point 
more than 5,000 feet from the shore, no 
ice is likely to be taken from tlie lake 
I this spring for sale in the city. 
' While the ice companies are not likely 
I to talce a'ivantage of the ice in the lake, 
■ the Fitger Brewing company will prob- 
; ably cut a considerable quantity for re- 
frigerator purposes. The ice they re- 
quire doe3 not need to be clean, as it 
I does not come In direct contact with 
1 tile beer, and all that is necessary is to 
I get ihe ice of the required thicJtness, so 
I ihal it can be handled properly. 

The Ice field is now much larger than 
it has been at any time this winter. It 
: extends beyond Two Harbors, as far as 
I the eye can reach, and varies in thick- 
1 ness from an inch or two. to about six 
1 Inches, close to the shore. This has all 
formed within the last few days, and if 
I the conditions remain the same for

I will be thick enough for the ice com-

! ihe field in a few hours.

The deck of car^s with which Co-

nowhere else in the world as they are 
in Spain, are upon the cards sent out 
from Madrid. 

There are countries in the world with 
cards not found in the collection. In 
this connection a little story, told by 
the niece of the collector, is interesting. 
Desiring to make her uncle a birthday 
gift one year, and knowing nothing 
would dtJlght him so much as additions 
to his collection, she decided to obtain 
cards from Oriental countries. Accord- 
ingly, she WTOte to consuls in several 
countries, asking that the cards be sent 
her. The first answer she received was 
from Persia. The consul was a cor- 
dial man, but he also was a candid one, 
and he told her that the native cards 
would not be carried by the United 
States mails, and he felt sure she would 
not wish to be connected in any way 
with them. . ^

He was a well known and respected

sitting, fast asleep, outside the roof of 
a house that he had entered. 

All no valuables had been removed

It seemed to be conclusively proved that

ling surprise 

The murder for "Which Thompkins was 
sentenced was that of William Brane. 
Brane lived with Thompkins" wife while 
the latter was In the penltentl.Try. In a 
rage of jealousy Thompkins killed his 
rival by tiring six shots at him. 

Pueblo, March 16.— The worst rail- 
road wreck in Colorado since the mem- 
orable Eden disaster, occurred about 2 
o'clock this morning on the Denver & 
Rio Grande railroad, near Adobe, the 
number of dead being estimated at from 
fifty upwards. The number of injured 
is placed at twenty-five. 

Eastbound No. 16 crashed into west- 
bound No. 3. telescoping the forward 
cars on each train. The coaches at 
once took fire and the flames completed 
the horror begun by the collision. 

The cause of the wreck Is attributed 
to a failure to deliver orders to No. 16, 
so that No. 3 could pass. 

Some of the victims were pinned 
undfjr the wreckage and burned alive 
before help could reach them. Most of 
the Injured were on No. 3, which was 
heavily loaded. No. 16 carried com- 
paratively few passengers, and these 
escaped, generally, with a slight shak- 
ing up. One man, whose name could 
not be learned, was the only one of a 1 
family of ten who escaped. He lost his 
father, mother, wife and three children, 
a brother and two other relatives. 

Dr. F. N. Cochens of Sallda, who was 
on No. 16 at the time of the collision, 

but who f scaped Injury, at once began _ 

caring for the injured and was assist- L^^^jr^g^ p'^;:'^j,^;:^"^'^y'goj^^f,eg '{^^r^

at the scene of the disaster. 

Three of the crew on No. 3 were killed 
and two on No. 16. One of the engin- 
eers on No. 3, which was a double 
header, was found dead In his cab, with 
his hand on the throttle. 

Express Messenger E. M. McParland, 
a relative of the detective of that name, 
who has been active in the Governor 
Steunenberg assassination case, is 
among the dead. Many of the bodies 
will never be identified, having been 
burned to a crisp. Part of the mail 
w as destroyed, and all the express mat- 

Relief trains were at once dispatched

HUGH SUDDITH, fireman^ No. 16, 

A. H. Smith, fireman to Engineer 
Causlett. stated that, just before thS 
collision he saw the head light of train 
No. 16 as it rounded the curve about 
200 yards distant. He went to the en- 
gineer's side and saw Engineer Causlett 
at the emergency brakes. He stooped 
dewn and feeling Causletfs feet upon 
his back, jumped. Not a word passed 
between the two men. Grant Kelker of 
i'ueblo,"" engineer on the second engine 
of No. 3, and Harry Hartman, his fire- 
man, both noticed the headlight of No. 
16 as it rounded the cure. Kelker yelled 
•'lookout' and applied the emergency 
brake. Both escaped by jumping. En- 
gineer Kelker said that he bad barely 
recovered himself when the whole train 
seemed to be on fire. 

Frank Smith, conductor on No. 3. 

Mike Garrett, conductor on No. 16, and 

Phil Peters, Globe express messenger 

on No. 3. escaped. 

No. 8 was composed of a mall car,

weigher on No. 16, w^ho was in the car 
with Messenger McParland escaped 
with injuries about the chest and head. 
W. A, Watkins, negro of Denver, 
train porter on No. 16 escaped with cut* 
about the heafl. 

All three engines were practioally 
demolished and piled in a heap and 
within a few minutes after the collision 
the wreckage was a mass of flames. 

The first three cars of No. 3 were 
plied up, but just before the wreckage 
caught fire the mfijorlty of the pas- 
sengers were removed. So far as knowi«

Pueblo, Colo., March 16.— About forty 
charred bodies lie in tiie ruins of two 
pu.ssc-nger trains on the Denver & Uio 
Grande railroad, which were wrecked 
by a head-end coliisio* at 2:10 o'clock 
this morning, at a point between Beaver 
and Adobe, about twenty-eight miles 
West of Pueblo. Part of the train was 
ijurned. Fifteen persons, severely in- 
jured In the disasti'r. are lying on cots 
at St. Marys liospital. in this city, with 
the prospect that some of them will be 
added to the dead list. 

For two and a half hours, half nude 
men, thrown from their berths by the 
Impact of the two trains rushing to- 
gether, frantically tore at burning tim- 
bers, endeavoring vainly to extricate 
scorching, dying people from an awful 
fate. When the first relief train ar- 
rived from Pueblo there was little in 
the cars that were burned to Indicate 
that iliere had been precious freightage 
of human lives, excepting piles of 
scorched flesh and sniouldering bones. 
Pa.ssenger train No. 3. the Utah and 
California express, which started from 
Denver at 8 o'clock last evening, left 
thia city soon after midrdght, heavily 
loaded with pa.ssengers. and pulled by 
engines .')29 and 720. The forward coach 
of the hapless train was well tilled, in 
fact it was difUcult to Ilnd a seat any- 
where, and a number of passengers 
were standing in the aisles. Just as this 
train was rounding a sharp curve, be- 
tween Beaver and Adobe, train No. 16, 
eastbound, running at a hlght rate of 
speed, whirled around the curve and 
crashed into the heavy train which 
was climbing the sharp grade. In an 
instant all was cojifusion. Passengers 
were hurled from their seats and cov- 
ered with splinters of wood and flying 
glass. Many were klllt-d In the Impact, 
and the others caught beneath the 
wreckage tilled" the air with their cries 
for assistance. A moment later the gas 
with which the train was lighted ex- 
ploded, and in an instant the wreckage 
was blazing flercely. 

One man, in the first coach of No. 3. 
had managed to raise a window, and 
had forced his body half way to free- 
dom, whsn he became lodged in the 
window. He fought flercely for life, 
but each movement only wedged him 
the more tightly. .The flames swept 
over him and left him writhing in agony. 
He cried out, "for God's sake, and for 
the saks of my baby, shoot me." The 
onlookers, prevented from approaching 
the scene because of the intense heat, 
could do nothing to relieve the man's 
sufferings. Finally a timber from the 
roof of the car fell upon his head, kill- 
ing him. 

The first four coaches of train No. 3 
were plied up, the greatest damage be- 
\ng done In the forward coach. It was 
here that the worst havoc was 
wrought. Hardly a person in this 
coach escaped with his life. A major- 
ity of the bodies caught by the fire 
were reduced to a crisp. 

J. L. Lawrence, Bellflower, Mo., and 
S. Z. .Sweeny. Trenton, Mo., were the 
only pa.ssengers in this coach who are 
known to have escaped, both sustaining 
but slight injuries. 

When the collision came, engine 720, 
which was pulling train No. 16. was 
crushed and being forced back by the 
itnpact. It telescoped the express car 
and shattered the first coach. The pas- 
sengers in this coach were all taken out 
before the wreckage caught fire and 
tlie casualties in this car were but 
slight in comparison to those on the 
westboimd train. * 

E. M. MacParUuid. messenger of tha 
Globe express company, who was in the 
express car on No. 16, was caught In 
the wreckage and burned to death. So 
far as can be learned he was the only 
one on the eastbound train to suffer 
this fate. 

The throe engines were practically 

Engine 529 with Engineer Walter 
Cosslelie in charge, was helping train 
I No. 3 up the grade and this engine re- 
Icelved the full force of the blow, beln^ 
I caught between the other two en- 
j glues and reduced to scrap iron. En- 
jgineer Cosslette had no opportunity to 
escape although his firetnan, A. E. 
Smith, saw the headlight on the en- 
gine of No. 16 as li rounded the curve 
and eseuped with his- life. William 
Hollis and his fireman, Hugh Sldduth 
r,f the engine pulling the eastbound 
train, were imable to save themselves. 
For more than a year Engineer Wal- 
ter Cassl^tte has had a presentiment 
that he would be killed on the road. 
Owing to the fact that the lighter cars 
were in front of each train, they re- 
ceived the full force of the blow and 
were crushed like eggs shells. The 
sleepers were practically uninjured, 
the passengers being only badly shak- 
en up. 

When the flames burst out among 
wreckage the surviving passengers, 
assisted by the few railroaders who 
were uninjured, cut the connection be- 
tween the wrecked cars and those 
which had escaped comparatively un- 
injured and forced the latter cars down 
the track to a distance that prevented I 
the fiamcs from communicating to

the snow was falling heavily. Tho !

train and brought to this city. Under-

On train No. 16 was Dr. William Co-

Strong Advances on Bi- 
tuminous During the 
Past Week. 

Chicago, March 16.— The Black Dia- 
mond, official newspaper of the coal 
industry, reviewing the Western mar- 
ket, tomorrow will say: 

Developments In connection with 
Western coal markets have been 
marked during the past seven days and 
have resulted in the strongest ad- 
vances in prices on bituminous coals 
that have occurred at any time since 
the great coal strike period of 1902. 
With the first of April only two weeks 
distant the labor Question takes on 
greater prominence wdth the result 
that all the large consumers of steam 
grades of bituminous coals are rush- 
ing to cover as speedily as possible 
and are storing all the coal they can 
purchase. Naturally with the market 
dominated by buyers Instead of sellers, 
the tendency of values has been up- 
ward. Prices during the week h^ve 
gained from 50 to 7i> cents a ton on 
Western product. Eastern bitumin- 
ous coals are .sli;?htly higher, but have 
not advanced in proportion to those 
mined in Illinois and Indiana and the 
result is that Western coal which or- 
dinarily sell at a much knvi-r flgure to- 
day are commanding the same 
price in the Chicago market as the 
Eastern product, past differentials due 
to the difference in freight rates hav- 
ing been wiped ouL 

The Chicago market is almost wholly 
on a speculative basitfi, and Is dominat- 
ed by the number of iuQuirits coming 
in for coal. Speculators ai'c prominent 
in advancing priced, and there is much 
trading back and forth among those 
having spot coal, atid also in car num- 
bers, owing to the extent of the demand 
and the fact that practically all the coal 
which can be produced before April 1 
has been absorbed by orders in hand. 

With reference to labor negotiations, 
the Impression among the large factors 
in the bituminous Industry seems to be 
more prevalent than it has been at any 

previous time that there will be a strike 
on the first of next month. There Is 
only one way in which such a strike 
can be prevented, and that Is by the 
miners backing down from the position 
taken at Indianapolis, and signifying 
a willingness to continue the present 
scale of wages. This would mean a 
complete retreat on their part from the 
position which they attempted to de- 
fend so strenuously a month ago. It Is 
not conceivable that the miners will 
make any such retreat, and the natural 
inference, therefore. Is that a strike will 
occur two weeks from Monday. 

Much Interest has been felt in the 
labor negotiations in the anthracite re- 
gion from the fact that the operators 
rejected the demands of the miners 
the early part of the week. A joint 
session of the operators and miners 
was held in the mlddle^ of the v. eek, 
but it was not expected the results 
would make peace any more nearly 
possible. In connection with the 
anthracite negotiations the conditions 
are not very dissimilar to those In con- 
nection with a new bituminous wage 
scale. The anthracite operators are 
standing by the arrangement now in 
effect, and as It has proved successful 
in ever>' respect and was decided upon 
by an impartial and neutral tribunal, 
they can not see any reason why they 
should alter their position. 

More activity has been noticeable in 
connection with western buying demand 
during the past week. This is due 
rather to Increased consumpiion of coal 
than to any strike scare, although the 
western newspapers have been filled 
with the news of the failure on the 
part of the operators and miners to 
agree. For four or fl^'e weeks the 
weather has been more or less of the 
winter variety. The result has been 
that consumption of anthracite for 
domestic purposes has been of larger 
proportions and household stocks have 
begun to run low. Evidence that the 

present demand Is due to the weatfier 
rather than strike conditions is found 
in the fact that most of the orders com- 
ing forward for cuiTent shipment are 
for small cars. If coal was being 
stocked dealers would not be so partic- 
ular to specify the size of the cars. 

Most of the Western shipping com- 
panies report a fair volume of orders 
for delivery during April. This busi- 
ness will Increase during the last two 
months. Orders are being accepted 
subject to prices current at the time of 
shipment. No shipping company will 
guarantee that April prices will take 
the usual discount. If there is to be a 
strike it is generally believed that 
prices win continue next month on the 
March basis, although no decision has 
been announced. It is certain they will 
be no lower than at present, while In 
some quarters it is possible that private 
coal will be advanced by the shipping 
companies in order to take advantage 
of the situation. Trade discounts prob- 
ably will not be resumed until peace 
has been a.ssured and then much will 
depend upon the basis of wages as to 
the price at wholesale for coal. If the 
operators are obliged to pay their min- 
ers higher wages naturally the pTice of 
coal will be advanced. 

Skating Race. 

This evening Norval Baptle, the 
champion skater of America, will race 
Chai-les Rankin, the Duluth skater at 
the Central Ico rink. 

The two Bien will skate a half mile, 
three-quarters of a mile, and a mile. 

"Men learn to shave on the chin of 
a fool" — and, sometimes, found their 
prosperity on the adversity of others. 
For example — buying a store or a 
property, whose owner Is forced to sell. 
And many such, opportunities are 
found in the ads. 


Steel Corporation's An- 
nual Statement Makes 
Excellent Showing. 

New York, March 16. — The pamphlet 
report of the United States Steel cor- 
poration for the year ending Dec. 31, 
shows that the company's gross re- 
ceipts were $585,331,736 an increase of 
$140,926,306. The net earnings wera 
$119,787,658, an increase of $46,611,136. 
After payment of Interest and divi- 
dends, charges for depreciation and ap- 
propriations for new construction and 
Improvements, there remained a sur- 
plus for the year of $17,065,815 an In- 
crease of $12,017,962. 

Cicero said that "it Is a mark of 
great ^^lsdom to take precautions 
against reverses of fortune' — such 
precautions, for Instance, as buying a 
bit of real estate now and then, while 
able to do so. Do not let yourself 
overlook the real estate ads.

MILLINERY Holds Forth | 
Inducements for Saturday* 

The new things taking ihcir place for the 
spring wearing are dainty and beautiful, and 
display many new and novel effects in both 
shape and trimmings.

item, and the three values below will draw no 
little number to the millinery section Saturday: 

$2.95— That for your pick out of this lot of 
5() trimmed hats— all new shapes--in black and 
colorsi a special low price for this day. 

$1.75— Priced down from S-?.05 for one 
day. \\h\''? They're blacks only, and one day 
ought to clear them out. Chiffon hats, 10 doz. 
of them, and worth S*3.95 each. 

25c — Everybody who wants or needs a tarn 
will be here for these regular 50c Angora 
wools — white and colors. Never sold at 25c

day — We Ve Helped You/ 

Saturday will be'devoted particularly to the 
' wants of the girls and children, in our depart- 
ment of coats and dresses. 

The splendid big line of pretty coats for the 
little folks, has come— and it's really something 
extraordinary. Exceptionally clever styles, 
embracing so much of beauty and daintiness 
that they vie with the artistic qualities in the 
coats for women. And so unusually little 
prices hardly seem possible. 

Let's tell you about a few of them— then 
come Saturday — bring the children and see 
them all. Here's a suggestion of the price

General Overseer Voliva 
I Go East to 
Secure Funds. 

Sum of $241,000 Needed 

to Save "Apostle's" 


Chicago, March 16.— G<'neral Overseer 
Voliva will leave Zion City shortly on a 
tour of the East to raise funds to tide 
Zlon Citr over Its f2«.0(» financial crisis. 

This announcement was made at the 
same time that (Jladstone Dowle declared 
that his parents had tiot separated, and 
brande4 the stories printed as "false and 


Mr. Vollva'8 trip will consume three 
weeks. „ 

He will go to Cincinnati, then to Pitts- 
burg. Philadelphia and other Eastern 
cities where there are Dowlelto taber- 
nacles, and where there Is a chance of 
raislin; funds'. He will paint Zlon's dire 
condition In the Jiarshest colors and de- 
mand money as a test of the faith of the 
adherents of tiie creed. 

The trip will begin next week and the 
first Cincinnati meeting will take place 
a week from Sunday. Mr Voliva hopes 
that his trip, which w:lll take about vtHee 
wfek.s. will go a long way toward reliev- 
Ijig the tlr.anclal stringency of the city. 

The general overseer, with Deacon 
Granger and Judge Barnes, held an all- 
day conference yesterday, which Is to be 
followed by a tour of the various iudus- 
trle.s- of Zlon City. 

Cliaracteriziug the separation story as 

"false from beginning to end." the son 
of the "rtrst apostle" also denied that 
Shlloh house would be sold. 

"Mv mother and m.v father are in per- 
fect harmony of spirit," said the young 

"There has been no separation except 
that of the thousands of miles between 
Zion City and Jamaica. My mother's 
health cannot stand a tropical climate, 
owing to an attack of malaria in Mexico 
last November. My father is not feeble." 

Meantime a telegram was received In 
("liirago from Dowie, Sr., denying he had 
bien depo.sod. and declaring Overseer \o- 
llva is acting as his agnt. 

The cablegram follows: 

Tilchrteld. Jamaice. March 15.— 8:11 p. 
m. Sratetnent that 1 have been depose*! 
entirely wrong. 1 am still, as ever, alotn- 
rt-.'-ponsible for the estate of Zion .aiid 
ecclesiastical direction of the church. I 
simply am absent from Zion City for 
rest, during v.hich time I am represented 
through i7iy power of attorney by l>eputy 
General Overseer Voliva. All statements 
to the contrary are falsifications. The 
tibove declaration will be verified by 
Deputy Oxerseer Voliva and my general 
counsel. Judge Barjies. 


Every one»of Dowies followers, how- 
ever, recognize the fact that his works 
have br.en subjected to a general up- 
heaval and reversal by the enerpetic 
young man, who is his representative. 

In spite of th- deniaJs of Mrs. Dowie 
and her son, Gladstone, certain pnpers 
which published the report of the sepa- 
ration yesterday repeated their char-^jes 
that there was a schism In the household 
oC the "first apostle." Tlie report as 
printed in one paper follows; 

"A widening of the rift In the Dowle 
household reported Tuesday was predict- 
ed yesterday by persons who furnished 
information tending to confirm the story

Dead Man Remaining 

Silent, Mexican Police 

Seek Other Clews. 

Tlaxcaia, Mex., March 16.— The search 
of the authorities of the stale of Tlax- 
caia for the murderers of Prof. Enrique 
Alfred Bourdoir, whose body was found 
on a hillside near the border of the ad- 
joining state of Puebla, a ballet wound 
through the heart, was Inaugurated by 
the ceremony of calling on the deSkl man 
to denounce his murderers. 

The justice of the peace of the town 
of San Pablo, attended by his clerk stood 
over the body and repealed tliree times 
I his formula: 

"Body, soul of my soul, tell me who ha:? 
slain thee; whether one of these present 
or someone now absent?" 

This Inqulrj- not resulting In the as- 
certaining of the desired facts, a search 
Is being made for a party of bandits 
who are suspected of the crime. 

Friction between the authorltif>s of the 
states of Tlaxcaia and Puebla has been 
created by the case. The murdered i 
man. a F'rench teacher, was a resident of l 
Puebla, and citizens of that state com- ' 
plained that the Tlaxcaia officials did : 
not institute the pursuit promptly enough] 
after the finding of the body in that j 
state. ' 

Two newspapers, I.ia Antigua Republl- j 
ca (The .\ncient Republic), p^ublished in] 
Tlaxcaia. and El Amigo de la Verdad i 
(The Friend of the Truth), published in 
Puebla, are in biiier controversy. The 
latter paper, which is a clerical organ, 

ridiculed the ceremony of Interrogating 
ihf dead bddv, while the Tlaxcaia paper 
replied by asking what harm could coma 
from complianef with such a formula. 
Both papers have issued extras both on 
the jiews in the case and on the point;* 
of I heir coni-o\ers5' witli each other.

Warrensburg, Mo., March 16. — Miss

aiiss Baker was at home alone when 
she saw the varmint cantering across 
a Held, near the house. Instantly slio 
was out calling the dogs to the chase. 
The wolf was not vllllng to give up 
without a struggle, but the dogs were 
fleet and determined, and Miss Baker, 
by cutting acrcss the wolf's circle that 
w£nt around the house, was able to 
keep witnin voice distance and clieer 
them. Over fences, through fields and 
thickets vent the hunted and the hunt-

a big feed tank and took refuge in a 
dark comer of the foundation. 

Miss Baker placed the dogs on guard 
and rat to the house for her brother's

was a snarl, a struggle and then quiet. 
-She left the dogs on guard until her

Th»» latter m.-iy call in the state auditor 
and .seereiaiy of state In an advisory 
way, but under the lu-w code he does 
not have to and the decision rests with 
iiim alone. 

Mr. Stanton repre.sent3 the signers of 
the tirsl petition which asks lliat Itasca 
e«.>nnty be divided Into two counties, one 
to be. known as Koochiching, with the 
C'Hjnty seat at International Kails. Thre<; 
other i)etltions have been tiled callinK for 
other divisions. Under the new co<1e but 
one petition can be submitted to the pe>)- 
ple and the governor nnisi be the JudKe 
o! it. Mr. Stanton will contend that 
ills p*>tltlon was th- only one approved 
lip to Mareli 1, wlun the code went Into 
etttct, and that the others have not yet 
liten approved. It will be contended that 
the petition known as the Deer River di- 
vi.sion is defective because it calls for the 
forniatf<jn of three new counties In one 
petition. The Northonio ^petition will be 
attacked on the ground that it has not 
the requisite niimt>er of signers, which 
is 643. In cheeking up the signers, Mr 
Stanton stated that he discovere<l dupli- 
cations and that several who signed his 
p.>tltit)n signed the Northonie one also. 
The Forest cotinty division will b*- at- 
tacked on the ground that the petition 
fails to properly name the boundaries. 

Mr. Stanton slates that If the proposi- 
tion Is once submitted to the voters of 
his county tho division will go through. 
At present those living In Iiuernational 
Falls have to travel 700 ndles to reach the 
count V .seat at Grand Rapids. They have 
to travel through two provinces of Can-

and nilh'age is so expensive that all but

Republican Men^bers of 
House Confer on State- 
hood Measure. 

i . 

I The Action Considered 
I Binding on the Insur- 
gents Present 

Washington. March 16.— As the result of 
I a caucus which lasted for two and a half 
i hours yesterday, the Republicans of the 
, house voted. VM to 35 to stand by the 
I statehood bill as it passed the house and 
1 asked the senate for a conference. This 
\ vote came after a resolution offered by 
Mr. Mondell of Wyoming, repres'-nting 
the 'insurgents" and ha^i been defeated. 
' Lis to 43. The Mondell resolution was to 
i agree to the senate amendment eliminat- 
I ing Arizona and New Mexico from the 
l)ill and to ask a conference on tiie minor 
amendments. Several speeches were 
' made. . . 

' Mr. Hamilton of Miciiigan, chairman of 
the eommittee on territories, opened with 
a pl'-a for the original house bill. He 
I said it had already been endoi-sed by three 
I Hepublican conferences. He discussed 
and opp.>sed the Forak. r amendment, de- 
claring It to be in the interest of corpor- 
ations ia the two territories affected. He 
contended that the bill was supported by 
the president and by Sp'-aker Cannon. 

"Let us follow them and fight it out 
Willi the senate." was his conciuding ad- 
inoniiion. _ 

Mr. Mondell, in offermg his proposition 
for concurrence, paid a high tribute to 
the speaker, but declared those who op- 
posed his position were only acting in 
aceordance with their duty, lie discussed 
lh«- binding effect of the caucus and de- 
clared he should not be bound by this 

The speaker follow^ed. touching first on 
llu' binding effect of both caucuses and 
eonfercnces. He took th- position that 
where the party takes action on any 
matter, all members pariicipating are 

He made the point that there are twen- 
ty residents of Oklahoma and Indian Ter- 
ritory, who objected to being tied to- 
gether where there is one in Arizona 
and New Mexico. He admitted he was 
being deluged witli telegrams on behalf 
of Oklahoma. He contend<'d that the ef- 
fect of admitting Oklahoma and Indian 
Territory at "this time and not disposing 
of Arizona and New Mexico only means 
that there will be four new stmators from 
Arizona and New Mexico instea<l of two. 
•1 wish to Ood," he exclaimed, "that 
the senate was twice as good as It is. It 
performs its futietions fairly well— it Is 
our senata, but to add four senators, he 
declared, would give that body too much 
influence as compared with the house. 
Reviewing legislation before conglV^l<, 
he .said the rate bill would pass; that If 
the house would stand firm, its statehood 
bill would also become law and we can 
stay hf-re for three months, he declared. 
Addressing the Insurgents, he saitl; 
"Why Join the Democrats in order to 
have vour own way." 

Mr. Babcock of Wisconsin, followed the 
speaker. He at once accused the lead- 
ers with l>eing eager enough to join with 
the I>emocrats on the i'hlUpplne bilL 
"You have fooled the members by calling 
it a conference." he continued, "when 
you ku'iw If you called it a caucus you 
iould not get a quorum. If the bill goes 
to conference, as suggested, it will die." 
Complaint was also made by Mr. Stecn- 
ersoii of Minnesota, against being drawn 
inti) a caucus. 

Mr. Davison of Wisconsin, counselled 
treating the senate as an equal. He de- 
clared plainly that he would not stand 
bv the house bill. 

"Mr. Reeder of, di.scussed the 
meaning of the words conference and 
caucus and complained against being

this now and when I look around I 
see their faces before me, and I chal- 
lenge contradiction. 

"Let us consider for a moment the 
criticism that has been made in re- 
gard to payments to me upon my 
single vouchers. Remember, I did not 
go In there and own this company. 1 
went in there as a humble little law- 
yer, a countrj' lawyer— and I got in 
there because I beat Mr. Pecksniff In 
his Beers pension and i beat him with 
all the legion of grear names that ho 
had around him: and I beat him sln- 
glehanded and alone. And when I won 
my victory then they said, well, we 
will give you a chance here.' and then 
I started in to perform my duties. 

"When the first month came and my 
voucher went in, that was the time to 
have said to me. sir, you have not 
submitted a proper voucher.' And 
whose duty was it to do that? The 
auditing conmiittee of the trustees. 
Were they perfunctory? No. salaried, 
a special salary for chairman, another 
for deputy, a due compensation for 
others that attended. Suppose that 't 
passed the first month. When the ac- 
counts came In, the vouchers were 
there for protection in the hands of tha 
comptroller and it came to a second 
month, and It went to a fifth month, 
and it went to a tenth month, and it 
went a year; and all the time It was 
carrying forward the business and the 
purpose and the protection and saving 
money for these Insurance companies. 

"But the tenth month passed, and 
there tvas no objection. And the first 
year and there was no objection. And 
the second year and the third year and 
the fourth and the fifth and the sixth 
and the seventh, the eighth, the ninth 
and the tenth, and then when the cr^' 
came out. they say 'well, we did not 
know anything abrmt it. This is the 
fellow, this Is the man that has done 

"If they had stopped; if they had per- 
formed their duty when they should 
have done it, If a duty-but mark, I 
am not assuming or asserting or ac- 
cepting that it was duty-but if it was 
duty thev should have stopped it at 
Its Inception. And when they con- j something; 
tinued and continued by me. the faults, | something; 

they took them and looked at them, why, 
then they approved what was done, and 
1 stand approved. If they did not take 
them and look at them, then they de- 
ceived me into the assumption that they 
performed their duty, and that tiiey were 
satisfied with the manner and condition 
of my accounts." 

Judge Hamilton went • on to 'correct 
the assertions" 'Which, he said, 
"nobody on the part of the company has 
assumed to do so to the effect that what 
Is called the Paris account was actually 
reported upon and passed upon by the 
auditing committee of the New York 

"And let me say further." he added, 
"that never a dollar of the Now York 
Life's money passed through my hands 
to which 1 did not put my 'John Han- 
cock.' ^ , . 

"You remember." continued the speaker, 
"the story of the steel trust dividend; 
that money was not paid to me. but was 
paid to J. P. Morgan & Co., to take up 
.some notes which 1 had discounted in 
order to pay for facilities and for the 
purposes of the time, the obligations of 
the New York Life. 

"Now it must not be said that respon- 
sibility of this auditing can be confined to 
A, B and C. During this long period of 
years there has been a rotating mem- 
bership; this time A and B; next year 
B and C; and next year D and E; so that 
all this knowledge has spread. 

"It simply excites my laughter, when 
I hear the gentlemen assert, they are here 
and in my hearing, and others, that they 
did not know that Andre*.' Hannlllon was 
defending the New York Life and the In- 
surance interests generally throughout 
the United States on behalf of the prin- 
ciples which the officers of the insurance: 
conipanles believed to be necessary for 
their suwess and for the benefit of tlie 

"\\ iiy, if there was troubl"^ and an 
agent would write from a far-off coun- 
trv, and say 'it liil'* bill passes It is go- 
ing to kill our bu.sine3S out here,' they 
would rush In, you know, to the president 
and .sav here's this ageiU's letter, for 
heaven's sake, we will lose all our bus- 
iness out there.' 

" 'Well, send for the judge. All right 
the judge will come. 'Sit down, 
what is the trouble?' 'Heavens, 

bill passes 
that state.' 
All right. 

we might as well get out of 

thousand dollars or five thou.sand dollars 
came Into my possession, I gave my 
voucher for It. 

"If I was going to do anything wron« 
with It, or put it in -my pocket, I would 
have got it in another way— and I would 
not have got it. Because I want to tell 
vou that the stingiest man I ever saw 
in my life that ever audited an account, 
was John A. McCall. I had .to go up and 
show cause before— well, I had to show 
cause first before I went Into it and thea- 
when I came baca. I had to show cause 
before I could pay my bills. So that I 
never knew, and could not know, how 
the accojnts were charged, whether $5,000 
was charged to this account or that or 
the other. I did not keep th*fr books, 
1 had no responsibility for -that, and tt 
there were errors and wrong in that. It 
lays right down at the admlnlstrationj 
and it comes right back to the board of 
trustee.s of the New Lork Life and to 
noboly else. 

"Xow, I am simply. In this interrup-

•About the methods and the vouchers: 
I have no excuse whatever to offer 
about the form of the vouchers that 
were accepted for the disbur.senients 
that I yiade to the various branch 
agencies. " The lnsuran<e world today 
is the greatest financial proposition 
In the United States. And as great 
affairs always attend, it comm.inda A 
higher law. In defending Its rights and 
Its property, you cannot stop to kick 
every cur that comes along and barks; 
and If yoti could sweep them out In 
other, perhaps mysterious, but honest 
ways, you are defending and assert- 
ing the higher law whleii great enter- 
prises have a right to command. So, 
I say, when these vouchers weie given 
over they were right, .'ind when the 
auditing committee approved thein. 
they stand as sponsors for them. If 
they did not approve them, then thejr 
failed to perform their duty. Atid the 
reason I come forward now Is not to 
say or not to apologize for these vouch- 
ers, but to say this: These men. with 
their responsibilities upon their should-

The Action Considered 
Binding on the Insur- 
gents Present 

Washington, March IG.— As the result of 

i a caucus which lasted for two and a hall' 

hours yesterday, the Republicans of the 

house voted, 1;;6 to 3o to stand by the 

! statehood bill as it passed the house and 

i asked the senate for a conference. This 

J vote came afur a resolution offered by 

I Mr. Mondell of Wyoming, representing 

the ■iasurgenis" and had been defeated, 

! 123 to 43. The Mondell rosolutioix was to 

I agree to the senate amendment ellminat- 

I ing Arizona and New Mexico from the 

bill and to ask a conference on the minor 

I amendments. Several speeches were 


Mr. Hamilton of Michigan, chairman of 

the .ommiiice on territories, opened with 

a pl'-a for the original house bill. He 

said it had already been endoi-sod by three 

Kepubliciin conferences. He discussed 

' and opposed the For.ik- r amendment, de- 

: daring It to be in the interest of corpor- 

■ ations in the two territories affected. Ho 

I contended that the bill was supported by 

i the president and by tip. aker Cannon. 

"Let us follow them and fight it out 
I with tlie senate." was hi.s coiicKiding ad- 
I moniiion. , . 

I Mr. .M.-ndell. in offering his proposition 
I for concurr.nce, paid a high tribute to . 
I the sp> aker. l>ut declared those who op- | 
. posed his position were only acting m 
i accordance with their duty. He dlscus.sed 
I ih.. binding eltect of the caucus and dc- 
i c la red he should not be bound by this 
I one. 

The speaker followed, touching first on 
. ihe binding effect of both caucuses and 
conferences. He look the position that 
wh-re the party takes action on any 
mailer, all members participating are 

He made the point that there are twen- 
ty residents of Oklahoma and Indian Ter- 
ritorv. who objected to being lied to- 
gether where there is one in Arizona 
and New Mexico. He admitted he was 
being deluged With telegr.iius on behalf 
of Oklahoma. He contended that the ef- 
fect of admitting Oklahoma and Indian 
Territory at this time and not disposing 
of Arizona and New Mexico only means 
that there will be four new senators from 
Arizona and New Mexico instead of two. 
• 1 wish to God." Vie exclaimed, "thai 
the senate was twice as good as It is. It 
performs its functions fairly well— it Is 
.uir senate, but to add four senators, he 
de«'lared, would give that body too much 
influence as compsired with th^- house. 
Heviewing legislation before congivsfc, 
he .said the rate bill would i>ass; that If 
the house would stand firm, its statchoo'l 
bill would also become law and we can 
stay here for three months, he declared. 
Addressing the Insurgents. he said; 
"Why Join the Democrats In order to 
have youi own way." 

Mr. Rabcoek of Wisconsin, followed the 
speakei-. He at once accused the lead- 
ers with being eager enough to Join with 
the Deinoi rats on the i'hillppine bill^

Complaint was also ma<le by Mr. Steen- 
erson of Minnesota, against being drawn 
into a cam us. 

Mr. Havison of Wiscon.sln. counselled 
treating the senate as an citual. He de- 
( lared plainly that he would not stand

Mr. Bed* of Minnesota, declared that 
the prosetsling was a "cork-us." At any

Mr. Waldo of New TorK. declared that 
senators who arc anti-rale men have 
f>um'd a combination with Democrats 
to defeat the bill and the Philip- 
pine tariff bill. To meet this combination, 
he declared, it would be bad policy for 
the house lo yield on stjitehood and have 
noihing with which to hght. 

That the defeat of the admission of 
Oklahoma meant the tl^T^at of the Ro- 
l)Ul)lican party in that s»iiciion of the 
country was advanci-d as an argument 
for the senate bill by Mr. Maddock of

this now and when I look around I 
see their faces before me, and I chal- 
lenge contradiction. 

■Let us consider for a moment the 
criticism that has been made In re- 
gard to payments l'» me upon my 
single voucher.s. Remember, I did not 
g-o in there and own this company. 1 

I went in there as a humble little law- 
yer, a country lawyer— and 1 got In 
there because I beat Mr. Pecksniff in 
Is his Beers pension and i beat hlni with 

'all the legion of grear names that he- 
had around him; and I beat hiin sln- 
glehanded and alone. And when I won 
my victory then they .said, 'well, we 
will give you a chance here.' and then 
I starte^d in to perform my duties. 

"When the month came and my 
voucher went in, that was the time to 
have .said to me. 'sir, you have not 
submitted a proper voucher." And duty was it to do that'.' The 
auditing committee of the trustees. 
Were they perfunctory'.* No. salaried, 
a special salary for chairman, another , , . , , 

for deputy, a due compensation for | \''*'U'^and C 
others that attended. that «t ^:.'„..„ ,i„.,../ 
passed the first month. When the ac- 
counts came in. the vouchers were 
there for protection In the hands of th,^ 
comptroller and it came to a second 
month, and it went to a fifth month, 
and it went to a tenth month, and It 
went a year; and all the time it was 
carrying forward the business and the 
purpose and the protection and saving 
money for these Insurance companies. 
•Biit the tenth month pas.sed, and 
there was no objection. And the first 
year and there was no objection. And 
the second year and the third year and 
the fourth and the fifth and the sixth 
and the seventh, the eighth, the ninth 
and the tenth, and then when the cry 
came out. thev .say well, we did not 
know anvthing about it. This Is the 
fellow, this Is the man that has done 

it all-' .. r. . ^ 

"If they had stopped; if they had per- 
formed their duty \\hen they .should 
have done it. if a duty— but mark, I 
am not as.suming or asserting or ac- 
cepting that It was duty— but if it was 
duty, thcv should have stopped it at 
Its inception. And when they con- 
tinued and continued by me. the faults. 

they took them and looked at them. why. 
tlieii they approved what wa,s done, and 
I stand approved. If they did not take 
them and look at them, then they de- 
ceived me into the assumption that they 
performed their duty, and that they were 
satisfied with the manner and condition 
of my accounts." 

Judge Hamilton went on to "correct 
the press assertions" -which, he said, 

nobody oa the part of the company has 

thousand dollars or five thousand doUara 
came Into my possession, I gave my 
voucher for it.

Virginia. Minn., March 16.— (Special to 
The Herald.)-J. V. Cox. of the saloon 
firm of Cox & Winchester, has been 
absent from Virginia since a week ago 
last Saturday, and nothing has been 
heard from him since a week ago Mon- 
day, when John Mesberg of this city 
was in Duluth and saw Cox early in 
the morning standing In front of the 
St. Louis hotel. After passing the time 
of day. Cox said to Mr. Mesberg: "I 
am going back to Virginia this morn- 
ing on the Missabe train." Cox came 
here about a montn ago from Eveleth 
and, in company with Mr. Winchester, 
opened the Marquette saloon in the 
building recently purchased by the Fit- 
ger Brewing company from C E. 
Pigott. A week ago last Saturday Cox 
announced to his partner that he was 
going to Duluth, saying that lie would 
return home on the .Sunday tlyer. He 
drew $25 from the till, pultiiitf down 
the amount on his tab. 

He did not return Sunday, but Mr. 
Winchester, thinking that he was de- 
tained on business, thought nothing of 
the mattt-r. until the days lengthened 
into a week and nothing was heard 
from him. Then he began to make in- 
quiries and learn<>d that Mr. Mcsberg 
had seen him on the following Monday 
mornin'K. Three men have bttu sent 

to Duluth to try to find Cox, but without 

Cox formerly resided at Gaylord, 
Mich., where he has relatives, an* it 
may be that he has gone there, but 
Mr. W"inchester thinks it peculiar, if he 
has gone there, thut he did not write 
or send some notice. Cox was a man of 
some means and had money deposited in 
the First National bank of Virginia and 
also in the First National bank of Eve- 
leth, but it is not known whether he 
has drawn his money. 

There Is some fear that he may have 
been the man who was drowned re- 
cently In the bay at Duluth, but Mr. 
Wlnchest^-r knows of no reason why he 
should have been in that vicinity. 

Fred Johnson, formerly of Duiuth, and 
George Saxe of Eveleth have opened 
saloons in the Hamm Brewing com- 
pany's new building at the corner of 
Chestnut street aiw W'yoming avenue. 

Hans Hanson las sold out his saloon 
business to Turenl Bros, of Eveleth, and 
the new proprietors have taken charge. 

J. W. Murphy was in Duluth on business 
ye.'sterday. " 

Prof. J. A. Van Dyke of Fergus Falls, 
an old friend of Lafayette Bliss, superin- 
tendent of the public schools of Virginia, 
has accepted the position of superinten- 
dent of schools at Coleraine, the new town 
on the Western Mesaba being established 
by the Oliver Iron Mining company, at a 
salary of $2,ti00 per annum. While Coler- 
aine Is yet in its infancy, It Is expected 
to be a town of B.tKK) or S,(H.'0 people within 
a year or so.

"That's all right, you scrapple-fed 
heathen!" returned Frank. "I will ad- 
mit that I am not as gilt-edged as 
some of the plated ware around Tren- 
ton, but I brought down the ducks just 
the same. In fact, I lived on them ] 
the whole week, and had so many to 
hand around among the neighbors 
that the storekeepers were glad to give 
away the turkeys and chickens they 
had in stock with every ten-cent pur- of molasses or a can of kerosene.

their children to the township school 
fair, and it they were the successful con- 
testants there, have goni4*»»ith them to 
the county school fair. h«id^ annually In 
the county seats. The "icoiiity superin- 
tendents, H. T. Ports of ^»r<ngo. Keo- 
kuk county, and Cap E. Miller of Sig- 
ourney, lowa county, worked hard and 
long on their schemes to Interest tho 
boys and girls In agrltultural things. 
Their succes.s has won praise for ihem, 
not only from the parent*, but from state 
officials and the press. ' 

Supt. Ports of Marengo began his 
work on the "Stay on the Farm. Boys" 
schetno more than two years ago and 
Iowa county has reaped rich reward. 
Three county school fairs have been 
held. Now. Instead of tajklftg about the 
days when they will live hi the cities, 
the schoolboys of Iowa county are 
talking of crops, cattle Mia tlie joy of 

The first thing Ports did was to talk 
to the teachers of his county about 
holding township school fairs. Ho 
suggested teachers of each town- 
ship get together and talk about what 
they could teach the boys and glils in 
the way of gardening and domestic 
science. The seed corn specials sent 
out by the University of Iowa to teach 
the farmers of Iowa how to grow corn 
had been through Iowa county and the 
teachers had he.ard the lectures. They 
knew how to test seed corn. They 
would teach the boys to do that. 

Then Supt. Porta announced that he 
would give prizes to the boys of Iowa 
county who grew the best-^orn. pota- 
toes and other farm proAifrts. He also 
offered prize.s for the best woodwork 
done with carpenters' tools. To the 
girls he offered prizes tpx a variety of 
fancy work, for bread. ^S>*ke», butter, 
etc. The township teachors Selflcled a 
schoolhouse for their township fair. The 
children of the dllTerent di=itrlct schools 
brought their best products of home 
and f.arm and tho exhibits surprised 
everybody. Tho parents and children 
were plai'od on their honor to exhibit 
only products of the children's h.inds. 
Then came the county school fair at 
Marengo, the town.shlp prize-winners 
moved to the county seat. The children 
'•ame from the farthermost corners of 
Iowa county to exhibit the results of 
their work. So perfect was the corn 
offered In competition there that Supt. 
Ports; had to request the president of 
the University of Iowa to send a corn 
expert to Marengo to .iudgo it. Prof. 
Holden, known throughout the West 
as "The Wizard of the Cornfield," was

detailed for tho work, and It kept him 
busy for two days trying to lind tUe 
prize corn. , _ . 

\ tf^a'^her of domestic science waa sent 
to Marengo to doUver leclurci to the 
schoolgirls of Iowa county on the .^ub- 
loct of home-making. The girls became 
so enthusiastic that they oiganlzr-d a 
home culture club. The boys formed an 
agricultural club. too. and every district 
in the county was n^presentcd. Now both 
clubs have a membership of more than ^w 
children. , 

Even the teachers have been encouraged 
bv Supt. Ports' prize-giving sciiome. He 
has made tt possible lor the teacher 
whose school made the l>?st exhibit to 
h(i among the prize-winners, the mer- 
chants of Marengo giving the prizes tor 
the teachers. The competition was stren- 
uous, and the Judges found their task no 
easy one, as the work exhibited was far 
above the standard anticipated by the 
promoters. , ^, , 

An interesting feature of the Iowa 
county school lairs has been the corn- 
judging contest for the boys. Not only 
were the boys called on to gtow prize 
corn, but an opportunity was given 
tliera to show their corn wisdom. Prof. 
HoMen placed a certain number of earj 
ot corn on a table. Each boy had to ex- 
amine the corn, then give it a percentage 
for merit. , , 

It surprised Prof. Holden when he 
found so many Iowa schoolboys who were 
actually better informed on the subject 
of seed corn than their fathers. The boys 
had profited by what had been taught 
them In the district schools. The boyj 
also displayed knowledge of potatoes, 
beets, cabbage, squaslies and frult-bear- 
Ing vines and trees. It was amusing to 
hear these lowa youngsters talk of their 
crops. Each boasted of a little garden 
of Ivis own, and there was muclj said 
I about "next year," indicating that they 
are going to do things when the growing 
season arrives again. 

At the first fair, two years ago. the 
I children held a historical essay con- 
1 test. First, each school had a contest, 
I then a township contest was held, and 
I spellers from the different townships 
! met In historical combat at the county 
fair. Last year, at a fair held In Wil- 
liamsburg, a declamatory contest was 
held. At the last fair an old-fashioned 

spelling bee waa conducted and the 
I iTize spellers from tho different town- 
' ships met to "spell each other down. 

It Is an Interesting fact that an Ar- 
> menian lad, a resident of America for 
1 less than six years, spelled all lowa 
' county down and Supt. Ports says that 
there are scores of good spellers in his 
county. . , . t. , 

Supt Miller of Keokuk county has 
made things move In his county, just 
las has Supt. Ports In Iowa county. Ho 
i has aroused interest in agriculture 
'among the boys and girls. Nov. 11, 1904, 
I a township fair was held in one of the 
i schoolhouses of Richland township, 
1 Keokuk county. It was the first of six- 
I teen township fairs now held annually 
' In that county. The first, second and 
I third best specimens of farm and home 
' products exhibited at the sixteen town- 
' ship fairs are now gathered at the 
Sigourney high school building, and 
i constitute the Keokuk county school 
j fair. The program and results are 
■ .similar to those of Iowa county. 
I The fairs are always largely attended 
land are looked forward to with a great 
ideal of interest. The parents are as 
'anxious at; the children and, in scores 
I of In.stances, It has brought the parents 
I and their children into closer touch as 
i workers for the common good. The par- 
'ents visits the Iowa schools now be- 
cause the teachers have been able to 

make them feel that their co-operatior 
j is necessary in order to make the fairs 
'a success. The children also take great- 
ier Interest in their study in order to be 
la competitor at the fair.s. 

Other results have been the recogn'- 
tion of the "fair days" as a part of the 
! school work by the state legislature 
and the co-operation of the Ames Agricul- 
Itural college. It is expected now the 
! school fairs will be held in many coun- 
ties next year and a state fair will then 
be arranged. 


New York Sun: An operation with 
an unusual feature was performed 
yesterday at Roosevelt hospital. A 
private patient had been suffering for 
some time with stone in the kidney. 
The exact location of ohstrtfctions of 
this sort is sometimes determined by 

the X-rays before the etherization of 
the patient. The Rurgeoii In charge of 
the case decided yesterday to find the 
stone, which was very small, by put- 
ting the organ to the rays after taking 
it out of the body. 

The patient, after being etherized, 
was laid face down. About a dozen 
medical men were present. It waa 
essential tliat the operation should be 
swift. A sweep of the knife over the 
affected part revealed the kidney. 
Within a minute the surgeon had tho 
kidney out as far as lie could get It 
readily. He held it In his hand as If 
it were not an essential possession of 
the unconscious gentleman prone be- 
low it, and with the fluoroscope found 
the almost microscopic stone, to which 
the lance opened a channel. A mo- 
ment later the forceps gripped the 
little stone and the attending doctors 
were inspecting it. 

Within about seven minutes after 
the first stroke o£ the knife the kidney 
had been put back In place and the 
lips of the slit in the back sewn to- 
gether. Fifteen minutes later the pa- 
tient was back In his room. 

The operation is said to be one of 
the flnst in which an affected organ 
has been searched by X-rays after re- 
moval from the body. Its quickness 
and thoroughness, it was said by a 
doctor present, were assurances of its 
success. The same doctor .said he did 
not see why the liver, or some other 
vital organs, could not be examined In 
the same thorough manner. The 
operation seemed to him to presage 
splendid possibilities In surgery. 

Haven't you seen a "To Let" placard 
In some particular window so long 
that yon come to wonder what waa 
wrong with the property? Placarding 
is primitive— very primitive— advertis- 
ing. It's Just a lltUe better than noth- 
ing—while Herald want advertising Is 
a Uttle better than anything elss.

Des Moines. Iowa. March 16. -In Iowa, 
as In Nebraska, they are doing all that 
educational ingenuity can do to destroy ; 
the germ that drives the boys from the 
farms Into the big cities. How to couple , 
a boy's ambition to an agricultural ca- j 
reer has been a puzzling problem for , 
both parent and teacher. Nebraska has j 
tried to interest her youth in agriculture ] 
by adding its study to the re^fular sehooi ^ 
course. Teaching agriculture is meant ; 
to encourage the boys W «tay on the 

lowi has been working on the same 
que.stion, but along a difteront Une. Two - 
county sui)t'rinlendents of schools 
evolved a scheme to ho4d what they 
elio<».se to call "TowiLshiit 9' hnol Fairs." 
.and these counties, Keokuk and l.iwa, 
have awakened to a new era in agricul- 
ture. The boys of two ..'ounties havo 
been growing corn that makes the •old

Tiie parents have piuaniy .escorted 
their children to the township sehooi 
fair, and it they wre the sueeessful con- 
testants there, have gona.^^jiih tlu-m to 
the county seliool fair ' •' iiniMlly in 
the county seats. T! v superin- | 

tendents, H. T. Ports .-. wimngo, Keo- j 
kuk county, and Cap E. Miller of Sig- 
ournoy, Iowa county, worked hard and 
long on tli'ir scheme.s to interest the 
hoys and girls in agrfbultural things. 
Their success has won prais.^ fur them, 
not only from the parenlf, but from state 
officials and the press. 

Supt. Ports of Marengo bogan his 
work on the '.stay on the Farm, Boys" 
scheme more than two years ago and 
Iowa county has reaped rich reward. 
Three <'ounty school fairs have l)een 
held. Now. instead of talking about the 
days wlu-n they will live In the cities, 
the s>'hoolboys of Iowa conniy are 
talking of crops, cattle an* the joy of 
living. ' 

The tlrst thing Ports did was to talk 
to the teaehers of his county about 
holding township s.'hool fairs. Ho 
I suggested teaehers of each town- 
sail as- j,)jjp g.,>{ togeth'T and talk about what 
they Li>uld teach the boys and giils in 
the way of gardening and domestic 
seience. The seed corn speel.als -sent 
out by the University of Iowa to teach 
the farmers of Iowa how to grow norn 
had been through Iowa county and the 
teaehers had heard the lectures. They 
knew how to test seed corn. They 
would teach th« boys to do that. 

Then Supt. Porta announced tiuit he 
would give prizes to the boys of Iowa 
coimty who grew the bes^.f'orn, pota- 
toes and other farm proAtfets. He also 
olYered prize's fur the woodwork 
done with carpenters' tools. To the 
Kirls he offered prize.s for a variety of 
fancy work, for brc kfs, butter, 

etc. The township i . Selected a 

8'hoolhouso for their tuwn.siup fair. The 
< hildren of the different district schools 
brought their best products of liome 
and farm and the exhibits surprlse-i 
«>verybod.v. The parents and eliildren 
wt-re placed on their honor to exhltilt 
only products of the children's h.mds. 
Then came the county school fair at 
Mar«ns?o, the township prize-winn*>r3 
moved to the county seat. The children 
came from the f,arthermost corners of 
Iowa county to exhibit the results of \ 
their work. So perfect was the corn | 
offered In competition there that Supf. 
Ports had to the president of 
the Univeisity of Iowa to send u corn ^

I told of how Gilniore, at Coney Island, 
hearing that the cardinal was in the 
audience, played "Maryland. My Mary- 
land." and how It pleased him. 

"Ollmore," said the cardinal, "was 
, famous for his playing of Mozart's 
'Twelfth Mass." Once he played it In

\ tf^.i-'her of domestic science waa sent 
to Mar'»n;?o to d<:liv«?r If^ciuroa to the 
s.hoolgirU of Iowa county on the .-^ub- 
y-cl of home-making. The girls beoanio 
so enthusiastic that they oiganizo-d a 
home culture (Mub. The boys formed an 
iigrioultural club, too, and every district 
in th(> '-ounty was r«^prei,tntrd. Now both 
clubs have a membership of more than U'jO 
child rfn. , 

Even thfl teaohers have be^^n encouraged 
bv Supt. Ports' prlz«-givi!ig scheme. He 
has mad'» U possible for the teacher 
whose school made the best exhibit to 
hi among the prize-winner.s. the mei- 
chants of Marengo givins ilie prizes tor 
the teachers. The competition was stren- 
uous, and the judges found their task no 
»'a^y onf. a.s th.i work exhibited was tar 
above the standard anticipated by the 
promoters. _ , . 

An interesting feature of the Iowa 
county school tairs has been the corn- 
judging contest for the hoys. Not only 
wjre the boys called on to glow prize 
corn, but an opportunity was givf^n 
tht-m to show their corn wisdom. Prof. 
Hoiden placed a certain number of uarj 
ot corn on a table. Each boy had to ex- 
amine the corn, then give it a percentage 
for merit. 

It surprised Prof. Hold^'n when he 
found so many I(jwa schoolboys who w^re 
actually belt*»r informed on the subject 
of .seed corn than their fathers. The boys 
had profited by wliat had l>een taught 
them In the district schools. The boyj 
al?=o di.splayed knowl'-dgc of potatoes, 
boets, cabbage, squashes and frult-bpar- 
Ing vines and trees. It was amusing to 
hear these Iowa youngsters talk of thfir 
crops. Each boasted of a little garden 
of his own, and there wa.s much said 
about "next year." indicating that they 
are going to do things when the growing 
season arrives again. 

At the first fair, two years ago. the 
children h<Md a historical essay con- 
test. First, each school had a contest, 
theii a township contest was held, and 
spellers from the different townships 
met In historical combat at the county 
1 fair. Last year, at a fair held In Wil- 
liamsburg, a declamatory contest was 
I held. At the last fair an old-fashioned 

spelling bee was conducted and the 
I'rize spellers from tho different town- 
I ships n»et to "spell each other down. 
I It Is an Interesting fact that an Ar- 
1 menian lad, a resld-int of America for 
' less than six years, spelled all Iowa 
county down and .Supt. Ports says that 
, there are scores of good spellers in Uia 
i county. 

I .Supt. Miller of Keokuk county has 
: made things move In his county, 
; as has Supt. Ports In Iowa county. Ho 
i has aroused interest in agriculture 
'among the boys and girls. Nov. 11, liKH, 
i a township fair was held in one of the 
. schoolhouses of Richland township, 
'■ Keokuk county. It was tlie first of .six- 
; t«»en township fairs now held annually 
' In that county. The first, second and 
' third best specimens of farm and home 
' products exhibited at the sixteen town- 
' ship fairs are now gathered at the 
Si;?ourney high school building, and 
I constitute the Keokuk county school 
! fair. Th<j program and results are 
' similar to those- of Iowa county. 
! TTie fairs are always largely attended 
and are looked forward to with a great 
ideal of interest. The parents are as 
■anxious at: the children and, in scores 
I of in.siances. It htu* brouerht the parents 
:and their children into clo.ser touch as 
I workers for the common good. The par- 
ients visits the Iowa schools now be- 
j cause the teachers have been able to 
'niake th^m feel that their co-operatior 
i is necessary in order to make the fairs 
la success. The children also take great- 
ler Interest in their study Ln order to be 
ia competitor at the fairs. 

Other results have been the recogn'- 

tion of the "fair days" as a part of the 

school work by the state leg-islature 

and the co-operation of the Ames Ag^ricul- 

Itural college. It is expected now the 

' school fairs will be held in many coun- 

'• ties next year and a state fair will then 

' be arranged. 


New York Sun: An operation with 

an unu.sual feature was performed 

'■ yesterday at Roosevelt hospital. A 

j private patient had been suffering for 

I some time with stone in the kidney. 

The exact location of obstrilctlona of 

this sort Is sometimes determined by 

the X-rays before the etherization of 
the patient. The surgeon in charge of 
the case decided yesterday to find the 
.stone, which was very .small, by put- 
ting the organ to the rays after taking 
it out of the body. 

The patient, after being etherized, 
was laid face down. About a dozen 
medical men were present. It was 
essential that the operation should be 
swift. A sweep of the knife over the 
affected part revealed the kidney. 
Within a minute the surgeon had the 
kidney out as far a-s he could get it 
readily. He held It In his hand as If 
it were not an esseJitial possession of 
the unconscious gentleman prone be- 
low it, and with the fluoroscope found 
the almost microscopic stone, to which 
the lance opened a channel. A mo- 
ment later the forceps gripped the 
little .«?tone and the attending doctors 
were inspecting It. 

Within about seven minutes after 
the first stroke of the knife the kidney 
j had been put back in place and the 
' lips of the slit In the back sewn to- 
I gether. Fifteen minutes later the pa- 
I tient was back In his room. 
I The operation la .said to be one of 
I the first in which an affected organ 
has been searched by X-rays after re- 
moval from the body. Its C4ulcknesa 
and thoroughness, it was .said by a 
doctor present, were assurances of ita The same doctor said he did 
not see why the Hver, or some other 
vital organs, could not be examined In 
the .same thorough manner. The 
operation seemed to him to presage 
splendid possibilities In surgery.

Rules Reflating Switch- 
ing Across Avenue Will 
be Drawn Up. 

Arrest of Railroad Em- J 
ploye for Obstructing { 
Street, Brings Results. If 


An agreement regarding the length of 
time a freight train will be allowed to 
obstruct Fifth avenue west, will be drawn 
up bet^vecn the Northern Pacific officials 
and the police, as the result of the arrest | ^^ 
ot Edward F. Malile, and the employes \ ^^ 
of the road will be instructed to live up 1 ^ffj^ 
to the agreement to the letter. j jjjr 

Mahle, who is a switchman In the em- •■ ^^ 

ploy of the company, was arrested on ' ifff 

the charge of obstructing the street. He ' sljfe 
pleaded guilty this morning through his [ ^F 
attorney, W. D. Bailey of the tirm of Jlfe 
Vashburn, Bailey & Mitchell, which rep- ^F 
rf.sents the road, and on the request of jitr 
A.s.s-istant City Attorney McKeon was re- ^F 
leased under a suspended sentence by Jkr 
Judge Cutting. j ^^ 

Mr. McKeon stated that he had talked aMk 
the matter over with the road's attor- , ^^ 
nt ys, and that an agreement had been ak 
reached, that certain rules should be ^^ 
drawn up by the police and the superin- SK 
tendent of the road, and should be rigid- ^T 
ly enforced. I fm 

"The city does not want to be vindictive | 7^ 
ir the matter," said Mr. McKeon "Al! ftk 
we want is to fix matters so that that | ^T 
avenue won't be obstructed in future as , jK 
it has been In the past. I have no doubt ] IT 
that rules can be drawn up that will be . ftt 
satisfactory." "J^ 

"The oOicers will be instructed to ar- aK 
rf St any of the men who don't live up to I ^C 
the rules, " said e'hief Troyer. It might SE 
be well to let that be known, and : S 
the fact that the penalty is a very heavy . sE 
one, the minimum flue being J75 and 

Judge Cutting gave the prisoner a sus- 
pended senten< e in accordance with the 
motion of the prosecuting attorney, and 
on the understanding that the rules would j 
be adopted at once and enforced as far 
as possible by the railroad company. 

At present the chief complaint Is of 
the manner in which the avenue is ob- 
structed during the busy hours of the 
day at noon and 6 o'clock, and also dur- 
ing the time that the Omaha trains are 
arriving and departing. It is likely that 
the rules will provide that no switching 
shall be done across the avenue at such 
times, and that no train shall be allowed 
to come to a stop on the avenue, or ob- 
struct it for more than a stated number 
of minutes without making a cut to let 
teams and foot passengers through. 








The unusualness of this event has insured its success. The 
attractiveness of the carnival of -white, coupled with the lo-west 
prices a Duluth store ever announced, have made the carnival 
the center of shopping interest. 

And the remaining days we have planned to be more im- 
portant than any of the others. New goods have been added 
—and in many instances prices have received further reductions. 

Probably some women in this vicinity have failed to take 
advantage of this rare opportunity to supply beautiful, desirable, 
satisfactory Undermuslins, White Goods, Laces, Embroideries, 
White Belts, Gloves, Waists, Suits, Domestics, etc., most reason- 
ably priced. Just look at the little list of bargains, and many

nearly drove me wild at times. I got 
medicine of a doctor, but it did not cur© 
me, and when I saw in a paper vo\^

anti I studied my case in it. I then 
went to the drug store and bought on*

I received relief. I used the first set

According to the first orders the 
trains were supposed to meet at Adobe, 
one half mile from the scene of the 
wreck. At Florence No. 16 received or- 
ders to meet No. 3 at Beaver five 
miles east of Portland. It is supposed 
No. 3 was to have been given similar 
orders at Swallows, but failing to re- 
ceive them, ran onto Adobe.

which was wrecked this morning, near 
Portland. Colo., by collision with east- 
bound train No. 16, is the Utah and Cal- 
ifornia express, which left Denver at 8 
o'clock last evening. 

No. 16, eastbound. is the Colorado 
and New Mexico express from Santa 
Fe, N. M., and from Durango, Grand 
Junction, Leadville, Salida and other 
Colorado points. 

J. Watts, chief clerk In the office of 
the general superintendent's office of 
the Denver & Rio Grande, said this 
morning that so far as the local office 
had been officially informed, the en- 
gineer, firejiian and express messenger 
of each train is misging. As No. 3 
carried a mail car. it is probable that 
the mail clerk is dead. All the baggage 
cars and coaches were burned, except 
the sleepers. 

Train No. 3 carried passengers for the 
West from all over the country. The 
majority of the dead were on train No. 

General Supt. Welby of the Denver & 
Rio Graaide left on the S o'clock train 
this morning for the scene of the wreck. 
He said: 

"Both train crews overlooked their 
orders. The coaches and baggage cars 
of both trains burned up. The smoking 
car passengers are the victims. Most 
of those killed were In that car." 

The scene of the accident was be-

Smitii, division engineer of the Northern 
Pacific Railroad comijuny. 

The request is evidently a result of 
the recent court decision, whereby tho 
railroad company is held liable for the 
repairs to the viaduct. The company 
apparently feared an accident would occur 
on the viaduct, and hereafter all teams 
will have to reach Lower Lake avenue 
by way of St. Croix avenue and Sutphin 

The railroad company is said to bo 
contemplating repairs to the bridge which 
amount practically to rebuilding it. 

The planking on the roadway will prob- 
ably be torn up, so tliat only foot passen- 
gers can cross the structure.

The old mans voice quavered and sunk

old woman with a weary smile "He 

threw it away himself and killed his 

Harter. He always had been a bad egg. 
and a menace to peaceable, law-abiding 
citizens. Yes, it was a gcK>d thing aU 
around, and the prosecuting attorney waa 
verj- complacent as he arose to outUn« 
the case to the jury. 

"This case, gentlemen, is fortunately 
so plain that it will ba necessary to de-

As the woman took her seat in th« 
witness box an almost impercepttlble but 
heart-breaking moan came from the white 
lip.i of the old man whose side she left. 
It caught her ear. and she turned her 
eves upon him. As she looked, his drawn 
face and terror-stricken eyes faded from 
her sight in a sort of mist through which __ 
she saw the face of her young lover of 
forty vears ago. And in her old ears 
there rang again the passionate words he 
had whispered there in the days long 
forgotten. She saw him t)eside her at tho 
altar on that day of days wlien all the 
future was bright and all the sky rose- 

And out of the mist came the outlines 
of the cradle in which she had rock«d 
her— the cradle Nat had built 
with Ids own hands. 

Then she heard as in a dream the smug 
voice of the prosecuting attorney: 

"Now, Mrs. Harter. lell the Jur>- your 
name and relationship to the prisoner 
and the victim of this brutal murder, and 
in vour own words tell If you saw the 
deed committed and just how it hap- 

Turning bewildered eyes on the lawyers, 
the court and the jury, the woman gave 
her name and Then gazing 
straight at her husband through tear- 
filled eyes, she said, with perfect delibera- 
tion and emphasis: 

"Tom and Pete had some words about 
some money and Pete got mad and said: 
'I'll kill you. you low, eood-for-nothtn' 
blaegard: that's what IMl do,' and he 
struck him with a chair and drove him 
back into the corner. Tom was tryin' to 
defend himself, and he saw he was gula' 
to gel his head broke, and there was 
murder in Pete's eyes, and Tom reached 
out for the knife that was on the table 
and struck at Pete. And It killed him. 
And that was all there was to it. ' 

During this testimony the prisoner and 
his father had leap«Mi to their feet, the 
former with amazement depicted on his 
face, the latter with tears starting to 
his eyes, while the prosecuting attorney 
sat back with mouth wide open, so 
thoroughly paralyzed that he never pro- 
tested as the old woman, at the end of 
her testimony, arose and stepped down

and he slipped ! court room

before her. 

"Where's Peter?" demanded the woman, 
drawing back her skirts, which the man 
attempted to cling pathetically to. 
"Where's my Pete, who never did a wrc ng 
to anvbody, and who always was bullied 
and licked by Tom? I won't save him; 1 
tell you I won't." 

The day of the trial came, and the 
prosecuting attorney arose calm and con- 
fident. Here was an easy case, and it 
promised to be brief. He would get a 
quick conviction and the accompanying 
glory, and would hurry along other cases 
and show a dispatch of business which

the introduction of antiseptics by Lord

permits of practically painless tattoo-

New York Sun: The report of 
the librarian of congress sh<^v8 the 
number of books In the Congressional 
library to be L300,000. The increase 
fn their number Is so rapid that it is 
expected that in the course of time the 
Congressional library will be the 
largest In the world. 

Before the extension of the Con- 
gressional library to Its present di- 
mensions the Paris national library, 
with 2,000,000 bookF, stood first. The I 
library of the British Mu.seum and the 
St. Petersburg imperial library fol- 
lowed, with 1,000,000 each. 

Berlin, Dresden, Munich and Copen- 
hagen had large libraries at that time, 
and there were 350,000 books in the- 
library of the Vatican in Rome, and 
300,000 in the Bodleian library at Ox- 
ford. The Washington library fol- 
lowed with 230,000 books, and the 
Astor library, in this city, had 150.000. 

The Paris library has now 2,500.000 
books, the library of the British Muse- 
um has 2J[)00,000, the imperial library 
in .St. Petersburg 1, 500^000 and the 
library of congress 4,300.000. At the 
present rate of increase the Congres- 
sional library will soon overtake that 
of St. Petersburg, and will ultimately 
overtake the British Museum and the 
national library In Paris. 

Meanwhile, under the sj'stem of 
consolidation of libraries now^ going 
on, the New York public library, a 
comt)lnatIon of three big libraries, will 
exceed even .the Congressional library. 

The Harvard library, at Cambridge, 
has now 560,000 books, Chicago uni- 
versity 300.000. and Yale and Colum- 
bia universities 300,000 each>

Canadian Northern Will 

Shorten the Wheat Route 

to England. 

Might Divert Grain That 

Would Otherwise Go 

Down Lakes. 

If present plans of the Canadian 
Northern railway are carried out. It 
Is said that within two years' time tho 
line will be extended to Hudson's bay, 
and a new route to Europe will then be 
provided which will I'line the groat 
wheat lands of Central North Ameri- 
ca much nearer to England, In a trans- 
portation sense, than th.-y have ever 
been before, possibly diverting much 
wheat In that direction that would 
otherwise be tran.Hporit-d down ihe 
Great Lakes. 

It has been p<.!?iti\ply asserted thit 
the Canadian Northern intends to con- 
struct this year tlie first liak In tha 
Hudson's bay line by building an ex- 
tension ninety-two mileH long from 
Etoiniian. on the Rrince Albert branc-h. 
northeast tu Pas. The exu-usion will j 
tap the Carrot river country, consid- 
ered one of tlie best wlieat regions in 
all Canada. . ,„ 

I Next year probably the extension will 
go through to Fort Churchill on the 
west coast of Hudson's bay. From 
Prince Albert the distance to Liver- 
pool via the Canadian Northern and 
Hudson's bay will be but 500 miles 
lunger than from New York, which is 
1,500 miles or more east of the wheat- 
rai.sing states and provinces. The new 
route, in otlier words, would save up- 
wards of l.OOO miles of carriage. 

For what proportion of the year the 
Huitsons bay route can be navigated 
is still a question. First class steam- 
ships have not te.stvd the possibilities. 
But the managernt-nt of the Canadian 
Nortliern road are convinced that their 
marine connections will be able to 
maintain joint service during six 
months out of twelve. This belief Is

Sold for More Than Thousand Times 
the Face Valoe. 

New York, March 17.— A rare set of 
eight unused United States postage 
stamps, in the collection of A. H. Scholle, 
sold for $2,501 at auction last night. The 
facp value of the stamps is J1.T5. It Is a 
complete set of the issue of Aug. 14, IsWl. 

\Vh«n the Civil War began there was a 
quantity of l!wT-SO i.ssue of stamps in the 
seceding states. To prevent their use by 
the Confederate postnuuslers. the United 
States authorities declared that these 
stamps were no longer to be accepted 
for postage, and the issue of Aug. 14. ISbl, 
was hurri«dly prepared. They did not 
give satisfaction, however, and in the fol- 
lowing month a new set was Issued. These 
' stamps are the earliest Issue that can be 
usod for mailing purposes. All previous 
issues have no value except to philatel- 
ists. . _^ , 

A Boston firm was the purchaser. It is 
supposed that the set was bought on or- 
der for the posioCFlce department 
la lacking a s»'t.

County Board May Dis- 
pose of Property as 
it Desires. 

Now that It has been definitely set- 
tled that St. Louis county Is to have 
a new courthouse, there Is much con- 
jecture among county officials and tax- 
payers generally as to what will l>e- 
coine of the old courthouse building 
when the new one Is ready for occu- 

While it is not expected that the new 
courthouse building will be ready for 
three years or more it Is thought that 
the county board may be able to dis- 
block where the old 
stands, tho 
^_ _ new site or 


Until the courthouse commission de- 
cides whether it will build a new jail 
or have the present county jail removed 
to the site ot the new courthouse, noth- 
ing definite can be done regarding a 
sale of the old site with its buildings. 
It is so generally known that the 
piesent building Is a ram- 
shackle affair, that in the event the 
county board found a purchaser nobody 
believes anybody would offer much for 
the property outside the ground value. 
The title ^q the courthouse property. 
according toltfieVullng of tho district 
court. Is vested In Uie board of county 
commissioners, aiid they have the au- 
thority to dispose of it in any way that 
they may deem to the best liiterests of 
the county. "' 

That the board will sell the property 
there is not the least doubt, in fact the 
commissioners have so expressed them- 
selves. Some of them say It is too 
early to talk about selling the prop- 
erty, and that the longer tho county 
holds It the more its value will iu- 
crease. ] 

So far as cant te learned the county 
officials have not yet been approached 
by any offers for the old site, although 
there has been some talk of the loca- 
tion for a hospital or for a large fiat 
building. ' ,^. ., 

The county jail and sheriffs residence 
are of modern construction, and are 
in excellent condition, as good as the 
da.y they were first occupied. The jail, 
because of recent Improvements. Is said 
to be In even better condition than it 
was when first built. 

It is claimed that the residence and 
jail could be moved Intact to FourtSi 
avehtie west, and some say that the 
county would be saving money by such 
a move. , , „ 

It l" up to the courthouse commis.sion 
however to determine whether It wants 
the old jail building, whether the jail 
will be located in the new courthouse 
building, or in a separate new building

We have employed the Eastern Audit Company of Boston to assist us in the physical exam-

Committee in its work. 

The only Real Estate owned by the Company is the Home Office Building, in Boston, the 
present value of which is in excess of the figure at which It appears on the books. 

The Company owns no stocks of any description. 

The Bonds owned by the Company are of high grade, with a present market value consid- 
erably In excess of the amount at which they are carried on the books. 

The Investments In Mortgages, in the opinion of your Committee, have been made with care 
and good judgment. This is also evidenced by the fact that there is but $710.05 of overdue, 
unpaid interest, and the Company holds no Real Estate taken under foreclosure prcceedmgs. 

Your Committee have not attempted to examine into, or pass upon the technical details of 
the Insurance business, but they have made such examinations of the administrative and operating 
departments as tUe time at their disposal would permit. 

In reiwrting upon general features of management, the Committee realize fully tlie difficulty 
of making any comparison of the elements vvliich enter into the business of life Uisurance. x%1tli

Old CoSrtSouse Site Will 

Be Sold By the 

' County. 

County Board May Dis- 
pose of Property as 
It Desires. 

Now that it has been definitely set- 
tled that St. Louis county Is to have 
a new courthouse, there Is much con- 
jecture among county officials and tax- 
payers generally as to what will be- 
come of the old courthouse building 
when the new one is ready for occu- 

While it is not expected that the new 
courthouse building will be ready for 
three years or more it is thought that 
the county board may be able to dis- 
pose of the half block where the old 
building and the jail now stands, tho 
funds to be applied on the new site or 
building. . , , 

Until the courthouse commission de- 
cides whether it will build a new jail 
or have the present county jail removed 
to the site ot tho new courthouse, noth- 
ing definite can be done regarding a 
sale of the old site with its buildings. 

It is so generally known that the 
piesent courthou.'^e building Is a ram- 
shackle affair, liiat in the event the 
county board found a purchaser nobody 
believes anybody would offer much for 
tho property outside the ground value.

thority to dispose of it In any way that 
they may deem to the best interests of 
the county. 

That the board will sell the property 
there is not tho least d.iubt. in fact the 
commissioners have so expressed them- 
selves. Some of them say it is too 
early to talk about selling the prop- 
erty, and that the longer the county 
holds It the more its value will in- 

So far as can 1>o learned the county 
omclals have not yet been approached 
by any offers for the old site, although 
there has been some talk of the loca- 
tion for a hispital or for a large tlat 

building. „ . , 

The county jail and sheriff's residence 
are of modern construction, and are 
in excellent condition, as good as the 
dAy they were first occupied. The jail, 
because of recent improvements, is said 
to be in even b.-tter condition tiian it 
was when first built. 

It is claimed tiiat the residence and

The only Real Estate owned by the Company is the Home Office Building, in Boston

The Company owns no stocks of any description. 

The Bonds owned by the Company are of high grade, with a present market value consid- 
erably in excess of the amount at which they are carried on the book.s. 

The Investments in Mortgages, in the opinion of your Committee, have been made with care 
and good judgment. This is also evidenced by the fact that there is but $710.05 of overdue, 
unpaid interest, and the Company holds no Real Estate taken under foreclosure proceedings. 

Your Committee have not attempted to examine into, or pass upon the technical details of 
the insurance business, but they have made such examinations of the administrative and operating 
departments as tlie time at their disposal would permit.

M. O. A. Ave by a score of 21 to 14, in the

atverwards getting it and keei^ing it to 
the end. 

'I'he I'ntctor boys say their defeat was 
due to the fact that their tallest player 
was unable to be present, and it was 
necessary for them to substitute a man 



pugilist. Still, he could tight some 
crtuld stop and parry or block well, and 
was a man of great resolution and 
courage. He was held in favor by ar-
